And the question is, why are the kids getting low scores?
It's because all the teachers are teaching how to take tests. What happened to the three R's?
Tax payers money down the tubes, while the teachers are not doing what they were trained to do....TEACH.
COMMON CORE is an agenda to dumb down America.
Instead of improving the educational system in this country, it is getting worse. I am disgusted with this whole idea. No wonder they are passing kids to graduate and they can't even write, read, and or comprehend. Pitiful.
We are so behind European nations and China! Japan in science, math,etc.
We are not the greatest super power in the world if we have people who can't understand what they are reading or even know how to write cursive.
Thanks for the link.....pickadukie

I agree, it's because the teachers that teach our children are more interested in how much they are making per hour, they don't give a crap about teaching our children. Why is it so hard to teach our children cursive and printing?( it's not hard) It's very important. It's because the teachers will have to work a little bit harder. They want lots of money for absolutely nothing that's why. The school systems in America disgust me.

Why replace cursive with the language of welfare seekingis disease carrying invading trash? Teach them cursive and how to cut out the tongues of those invaders without killing them. A mute beaner is a better lettuce picker when they can't yap.

They are your words, Nate.

"Only people who don't love their kids go to school board meetings!"

"You should go to a school board meeting!"

"Don't do that, they will retaliate against your kid!"

"No, they won't. That's stupid."

"But it happened to people I know."

Do you change hats while you do that?

What's the matter, Wolf...did they finally break you on the national boards? God knows you've probably been the subject of investigation by the authorities.

For written, you also realize the prescribing physician must also be identified in print, with phone and address?
On the rare occasion I get a paper prescription these days, its computer generated, never hand written.

<quoted text> It was the school's and teacher's responsibility to teach him or at least let me know he couldn't write, no one told me anything. My son would take their tests and pass 100%. I don't think they knew he couldn't write... that's the sad part. They want more money and less teaching. It falls on the school system. I made sure he graduated, don't call me a slacker. I was his teacher for the four years prior to his graduation.
I sure hope you're talking about years if not decades ago. You can't rely on the Columbus Public School system to relay messages to each and every parent. Their stats have proven last for graduation rates in all central Ohio. I do believe when parents take interest in their children's school work, it helps tremendously in their confidence and strive to not let the parents down. If the parents aren't concerned as much, whats that say to the student?

It's good you caught it while you say, but kinda foolish to not have noticed earlier.
Now you know...Everything is a lesson learned.

No, it's not the teachers. They go above and beyond their duty in trying to teach these kids. It's the kids who do't want to learn and sit and play with their dam phones.
