Why do I constantly hear from this district that we are only teaching to the test? It looks like we are not doing that well. It is not good to use common core because Obama and the feds pick content. If you don't teach that content you won't score well on these standardized tests. I don't want Obama telling my kids what they have to learn and then testing them on the revisionist history and the socialist ideology. I don't think any of us are looking at the test of the future but, I want to know if the questions are such as.Now that we all have read the Grading on a Curve document that everyone is pasting on here - what are you suggesting we do? What recommendations are you making to improve Springboro school district? Are the common core standards going to get us where you think we should be?
There has been posting after posting about the cut scores and how bad Springboro is doing but I've seen no specifics from anyone as to how to improve.

What is the answer?
This is Common Core. Federal "standards" for what is taught.
Everyone/anyone that write the standardized tests rewrites history because every public school will comply to do "well" on the test. Schools will always teach to the revised test. The current Standardized tests are fine we just need to teach the content contained in them and not use the textbooks that do not comply. Textbooks today have been revised to test on how socialist you child has become. I think we are all doing our teachers a disservice when we test what they have not taught because the content they are teaching does not match the test-course content has been revised but the tests are traditional. Please teach to the test, forget the revisions that have been put in place to indoctrinate our kids, go back to traditional education content and stop trying to make our kids little socialists that tolerate all points of view on history, you are making them confused. We have but one history and one reason for that history. Christianity.
