the no child left behind program has harmed our school system more than its helped
I read an article a few days ago about how in China they only give the "smart kids" air conditioning. Hmmm...
People in this country don't value education as much as they do in many other countries. It is more important for kids here to wear designer clothes and shoes than to achieve educationally. Some of the statistics are a bit skewed as well. In many countries only the top % of kids take the tests they are using for comparison while in the US it is based on total population usually. Just some information I have learned when studying the educational systems of other countries.
lol my child will be attending school in the UK as of right now. Unless we move again in the next few years.
Schools need to stop addressing social issues and parenting our children and focusing on a core curriculum instead of sports and ethics. Parents need to step up and start parenting instead of simply giving birth and allowing children to raise themselves.
Quoting lovinglife0682:When people realize other countries only teat their college bound students, and america tests every single student they will have a better understanding.
Um no. Wrong.
