I remember being able to master a skill before moving on and now students seem to be moving on without mastering skills. I know teachers are being forced to cover skills in a certain time frame for these standardized tests. What have you noticed that is different?

ANON when a teacher has NO SUPPORT from administration, it is hard to control bullying in the classroom ALONE. Sadly, many DO NOT have the proper support from administration when it comes to bullying. The school as a whole needs to work together and make a PLAN for bullying. imo I'd never just put it all on the teachers. It's on PARENTS-TEACHERS-and ADMINISTRATORS.

I don't know the differences. I suspect it was very similar. What I noticed working in schools that I was disheartened to hear: teachers bad mouthing parents. EVERY parent was considered a bad parent. EVERY parent who had a concern was a bitch. The name calling behind parents back, the gossiping that went on....how unprofessional, cruel, mean, and flat off the mark. And it was at many schools. Not just isolated. When I meet teachers....they complain relentlessly about how many parents don't care or are not involved. I do agree, having worked in schools, that teachers are pressured to teach for the state standardized tests. That is different. Kids I saw had anxiety over these tests. Often working themselves up to the point of vomiting and literally getting sick from the pressure.
