The teachers don't know what will be on the test, nor do they know the answers, so no they don't have a secret book of the questions.

The teachers I had were fantastic, most of them there are. The GHS teachers have 90 days, less than that if you count snow days, clueless substitute teacher days, and the half auditorium days.. less than 4 months to cram the majority of an entire book in your head because the SOLs are a mix of different questions from multiple previous SOLs. Students have 2-3 SOLs a year, give or take, until Senior year. Do the math. The SOLs are also relatively unimportant, it's whether or not they're prepared for SATs and ACTs.

The teachers are highly competent, so every determined student can do well on these. That, my friend, is all that matters. No college on Earth takes SOL scores into consideration, just SAT and ACTs unless the student plans on going to a community college. Either way, GHS students are prepared. Why should a few uncovered, out of the blue', SOL questions concern you?

If you want to believe a lie, like many people do for comfort, be my guest. As much as I loved my time there, my profession of choice was far from teaching. I told you the truth on the subject, and yes some teachers help students on SOLs because I personally had one myself. 2-3 SOLs a year, the teachers had 90 minutes a day, 80ish days to complete the majority of a book. They give SOL preps in the form of previous SOLs because they (the SOLs) are mixed questions from those very SOLs, along with new ones from current textbooks. If you believe any student can memorize the entire content of 2-3 high school books a year, in 80ish day intervals, I would have to question your capability of rational judgement. The teachers are competent, like I meantioned before. Any student willing to academically excel, can at GHS. I'm proud to say my education came from that institution.

When I attended GHS, there were some good teachers as well as some horrible ones, particularly in math and science courses. I would no expect elementary or high school teachers to be exceptional considering education degrees (bachelors and masters) are one of the easiest, if not the easiest, college degrees to obtain.

So what I'm hearing you say is that most of your "dumb" friends went on to get at least a bachelor's degree from an accredited university, successfully demonstrate their abilities to the satisfaction of a seasoned educator during their student teaching requirement and pass a series of professional licensure exams. Yeah, they're total idiots!*sarcasm*

What did you say it is that you do for a living?

I think he is trying to say that a degree in education is far inferior to other degrees such as biology, english, business, engineering, history, etc. All you are doing is re-learning subjects you were taught in high/elementary school and learning how to teach said topics. It's a joke.
sorry

I think you are mistaken in regard to which post I was responding. I was responding to post #16 not #15.

After some research into the subject, I have concluded that education should not be a college major. Perhaps it should be a subject in vocational school?

Enough said. Stick your chest out and keep telling yourselves you have a college degree, dumbasses.

You quoted the mistaken post that you thought you were thinking you thought you wanted to post about being confused about. You must be a teacher.
