My son brought home his report card yesterday and needless to say, it was a little disappointing. He made honor roll for the last 3 years and this is his first year of high school and now his grades have dropped tremendously. So...lastnight I was helping him study something in his world history class and this is what he said..."I have to study this booklet that the teacher gave us because she tests us everyday on what we studied. Sometimes we have three tests." So I asked him what else they do in class and he said that the tests were it. The teacher never teaches anything. She just hands these books out and tells them to study them every night. Is this the norm?? How are children supposed to learn from this? Just curious...Answer Question

School vouchers would be the answers. Take that voucher to a private school. They seem to just take taxpayers money for not teaching.

I'm a teacher and this post offends me. Your son is in high school so he's has dozens of teachers. Just because this ONE is not effective doesn't mean all of us don't teach. Lumping all of us into one category is unfair.
BTW... just because your son says the teacher doesn't do anything but give tests doesn't make it true. Kids say whatever they need to to deflect blame on someone else. It could be true, but I would talk to the teacher before pointing any fingers.
