The other thing that ticks me off is standardized testing. Teachers have had the creativity sucked out of their profession, because they are now being forced to teach to a test. They also have to teach how to take a test. My big problem is that there are lots of kids who suck at taking standardized tests. Plenty of those kids who are bad at them aren't unintelligent either they just aren't good at taking tests. We need to find a better way to get results on how well students are learning. Testing just isn't the way. Plus they lose a lot of money on it.


So your from Texas? Do you mean the TAKS?

If you do know, then it is a waste. Because all the talking about it stresses us (the students) out. And since they changed the expectations for 8th graders, it's really worrying people who are bad at the subjects needed to pass.


they lowered the bar for that test a hell lot of times or so i heard.

either way i will never take one of those tests in my life again.


btw the test was a joke i slept through it and hurried on it to answer..always scored well

pff public high school and under in america is a complete joke compared to the rest of the world

college and univ is coo.

i think it was george carlin that said if "you take someone aside and ask them how to improve the education system in the us theyll say to pump more money in" roughly roughly paraphrased very roughly

though the foods still garbage they got freaking monitors for the menus(tru story) what the fudge



If it is that easy, then the kids at my school are dumb@$$#$

math and Science are important even if they do suck.
I would think Literature should be cut, who cares about poems

It would be unfortunate to cut any classes at all.
All the different types of classes help each and everyone of us choose the path we want to take later on in life.
It also introduces us to many things, and you never know... you might just find a hobby.
PE is important for exercise! sports are fun and join people together. It's a great stress reliever.
Science and math is no doubt the MOST important classes.
History, language, writing, etc etc are all important as well, as they serve many purposes for when you
get into higher education. Every little bit of education helps later on in life, whether for school or small talk with others.

So let's say no to budget cuts on education! though it's not like it'll make a difference...
The damage as already been done ~.~

I forgot to mention music and art xD they are fun classes!
shouldn't be cut either! =P
