An English Notebook and Report Card from 1943

My grandmother's old English notebook, from circa 1943.

The "Excellent"s turn to "Very Good"s when she gets a new English teacher.

What's slightly unnerving is that the high level of English. Was education better then? 

A bonus: a report card from 1941, when she was 15 years old. 

Despite her claim that no-one was urging her to study, she got great marks in the main subjects. Hilariously, her one bad grade was a 30 in home economics.
