No actually the problem Is the kids know the test Is not going to matter If they graduate or not. None of them testing has ever been taken seriouslly. Maybe If they make the test to be part of them graduating or not, the kids might try a little better!!!! Everyone wants to blame the School & the Teachers, but in all honesty the students don't really care about It.
well

The students feed off the teachers & the TRUTH is that most teachers don't care either!

If the state was really smart they would look into the cooks and investigate why everyday this week the school can't afford to feed there kids! Everyday this week the cafeteria has ran out of food! Sounds like poor management to me! I feel the state takin over might be the best thing that has ever happened to them! Maybe now they will get some teachers in that can actually teach and get rid of the ones that show up just for the money!
absolutely

First off, the test scores reflect whether or not the teachers are doing their jobs..and most of them aren't. I say most, not all. I sat in several of my classes and did nothing while the teacher played on the Internet or flirted with the students.

Second, the cooks don't manage how much food is bought for the school...that is whoever does the budgeting for the county.

ECHS is in trouble, that's obvious. If you listen to Go Radio of the morning, you would know that. The state is most likely going to step in and put a stop to the non-sense that goes on up there. I, for one, think that would be absolutely fantastic for the students.=)

its well known that alot of teachers havnt been doing thier jobs, but those tests should be worth points to the students grades, i know many dont try out of pure laziness, because they know it dosnt matter to them

The students can't complete the test because the material has never been taught and if it has it wasn't explicit. The questions that are on the test cannot therefore be answered by the students so its best to just guess. Better yet, just go through and mark which ever.

Isn't the real issue, will we finally get a good football coach now? If the state really wants to help, they should make sure we get a coach with a proven track record of winning. Who really cares about a test anyway? Nobody pays to watch a test.

it shouldnt be hard to weed out the teachers who dont do thier job, even the janitors can tell who they are, showing a video every day isnt teaching

Heres the thing. I know the test scores are to see how well the teachers are doing there job. But I remember when I took those test every year and could had gave a sh** less about how well I done, because I knew It wouldn't affect me!!! That is what most of the kids do, Is rush through the test so they can sit in the library an do nothing!!!! Sorry but that Is the truth.

It's not the cooks fault. The district is probably trying to save money by cutting down on how much they feed they kids.

WHY DON'T THEY DRUG TEST TEACHERS AND FACULTY AND FIND OUT WHY SO MANY STUDENTS ARE ADDICTED TO DRUGS BY THE TIME THEY GRADUATE OR DROP OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL? AND YES- STOP TEACHERS (AND FACULTY)HAVING SEX WITH STUDENTS. EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS JUST COVERED UP. STUDENTS AND FORMER STUDENTS SHOULD START TALKING AND LET THE TRASH BE KNOWN. ADULTS SHOULDN'T PREY ON YOUNG PEOPLE.

OK. Im a student that attends ECHS! I want to learn just not at East Carter. Most teachers, well half of the teachers up there do nothing but sit behind their desk.. So dont be blaming the students. Our test scores our low. But Elliot Counties is alot lower. All the faulty and staff do is sit on their butts, smoking cigg's, the teachers knows about the students smoking in the bathroom why dont they do anything??! I would honestly rather go to West Carter then spend another useless day at East Carter. There is no way Im ever going to get in a college, with the education Ive learned.

Many of the teachers at east carter simply do NOT teach. I had many classes that we just set there and stared at the celing or each other. It's crazy..... And they wonder why so many East Carter graduates have to take remedial classes when they go to collage. I have had professors ask me if I went to East Carter when I told them I did not know what they were teaching. It's pretty bad that they can tell what school you went to by how little you know.
