Forget standardized testing with all of its trimmings, and focus on
teaching/learning.Students are BORED of the tests. The tests causes
contention, dulls creativity, and restricts independence.Teach, and
make it fun for the kids! Focus on teaching.
If you keep doing what you've been doing, you'll just keep getting the
same results. The lawsuit to stop an already proven alternative to an ongoing
failed school system is sad and pathetic. Teacher unions once again overstep
their bounds and prove they are more interested in money than the well-being of
the students involved.
Yes, lets keep funding failing schools, that way NOBODY wins!
I don't thinking raiding the money from public schools via vouchers or
through charters will help. Though Utah didn't go with vouchers, the
charters are pulling resources away from our schools. I think properly funding
schools and getting off teacher's backs are the answers...
