DEBATE: THIS HOUSE WOULD BAN IPMs OPPOSITION Hello everyone, I'm Nicky we are the opposition and strongly believe IPMs should not be banned; on the contrary we believe it is an integral part of our education. Today, I will be the 1st speaker, Tim will be 2nd and Tom will be 3rd speaker. IPM is interim pupil monitoring which is done every term for each individual pupil giving children an effort grade and an academic grade.
