Re: Terrific: America Lags Behind 31 Other Countries in Mathematics - Thanks unions.

We were number 2 before Carter scammed us with the Dept of Education

Each community needs to set its own standards. The idea that we can produce "job ready" graduates for any and all employers is silly.

We are being very successful here in Nashville with Academic Academies. In my school, students graduate with a high school diploma and a certificate of training...medical research has 5 pathways, and the kids who choose that path have are CNAs on graduation day. We have STEM academy, Design, Art and Communications, Cosementology and on and on.  The idea here is that if you want to go to college, you can. But you leave us with a skill set that enable you to earn money even if you don't.

Not all kids are college material. If we insist that every child be ready to go to college and they all do, then there is no longer benefit in the degree,  We need truckers, plumbers, electricians, HVAC etc. and in Nashville, we are addressing that need.

we also require 22 credits, in Language, Math, Science, Social Science and Humanities. If kids want to go to college and score a 21 on the ACT, they go tuition free. We have bridge classes for kids who arrived to our classrooms without the skills needed to succeed there.

How are we sure our kids are learning? We ask them, every minute, every class, every block, every day. We require them to write letters, essays, white papers, etc. We have state tests for Biology II, English II, and EOC courses in English I and US History.

Its really easy once you think about what the kids want to do after high school.we provide options. How about those apples?

What should we teach toward?    How do we measure whatever you say?    Mathematics seems the easiest suhbject of all to "teach to the test"  toward.  Can one come out with different putcoems to math problems?      On Sep 23, 11:32 am, lynn...@aol.com wrote:  > Where do you get this stuff?

The demand that all children in all schools test   the same requires teachers to teach to the test which limits what can be taught.   Kids remember what is taught through project based learning which goes deep.   Teaching to the test goes wide...lots of different facts all in a string but not   time to really get it.  >  > Sent from my Samsung smartphone on AT&T  >  >  >  > lew <lewc...@aol.com> wrote:  >  > >Terrific: America Lags Behind 31 Other Countries in Mathematics -  > >Thanks unions.  >  > >Daniel Doherty  > > Web Editor, Townhall.com  > >Sep 22, 2012 07:00 PM EST  >  > >I understand that we are more than $16 Trillion in debt and  > >unemployment has been above eight percent for 43 straight months, but  > >education reform is a moral imperative that cannot wait:  >  > >We have a crisis in our schools.
