[QUOTE=copernicus;4495188]The tests have MAJOR mistakes! There also MULTIPLE STANDARDIZED TESTS that the students are taking ALL YEAR LONG. These test cost MILLIONS of tax payers money. It is 12 years of it and its proven to NOT HELP. Students ARENT going on meaningful field trips, have less music and art, and less time for after school activities and sports because of the demands of theses tests!
My family's ability to live and eat should in part be judged on tests that have such major mistakes? Got it[/QUOTE]
Wow after this post I have to assume you are a DRAMA teacher...
Meaningful field trips, please!
Why is a missing question when you had to pick 2 of 3 that horrible. They just do 31 and 32, Woo hoo, I chose the 2 that exist! :rolleyes:
Less time for after school activities could be blamed on you giving homework every night too. Why can't you get it all in during the day? There have been several studies that show no value in homework.
Shouldn't you look at the tests as an opportunity to show how well you are doing instead of assuming that everyone will fail?
I have said this to you before and never got an answer but do you think that adults don't have problems? Employees and their colleagues and customers all have real world problems too. Money problems, health problems, high stress due to marital problems, kid problems, parents health problems, cut backs at work, kids not learning anything at school, etc.
You assume a salesman's only problem is how hard he works but don't take into account the customer's attitude, the economy, the competition or even how bad the product is that he "has" to sell. Now you will say then he should go to a different company with a better product and I pre-counter you with, then why don't you go to a different school?
