If teaching the basic academics hadn't been abandoned in favor of all the social engineering bullcrap, this problem would never have appeared. All this touchy-feely group hug stuff was a nice thought but it doesn't prepare a kid for life in the real world. All the basket weaving and diversity classes won't get a kid a job as an engineer.

MCAS results would improve significantly if parents would participate in their children's education, Too much responsibility is placed on teachers; not enough on the parent and student. Parents of children in elementary schools should have to sign off on their child's homework packets, tests and quizzes. Keep them involved and watch the scores go up. Teaching to a test does not necessarily provide an education.

MCAS results in Marlborough would improve if Immigration would come take the 30 or so little moochers off my block and deport them back where they belong. The average scores would skyrocket.
