We keep missing the target:* standardized test scores* school
grading* making teachers, and schools accountable* blaming*
comparing schools, and causing contention.The focus is
easy.--Teaching, and learning.
Why not give the parents the grade instead? Parents have abrogated their
responsibility for teaching their children everything from morals to sex
education to religion to just being a parent to the state. The problem
isn't necessarily the schools, it's the parents.Home
school your kids. They'll get a better education and be better people.
