One of the greatest problems with public schooling is that teacher’s have to teach the kids not what they need in life but what they need to pass a test. Here in Texas the biggest problem is the TAKS Test, which is the Texas Assesment of Knowledge and Skills. Which by the way it does not asses. Here is a question from the social studies test
I would hope that with any schooling you would already know that by 8th grade, which was the version of the TAKS test I was using for the above example. Unfortunately, it is this kind of stuff that teacher’s have to teach instead of the importance of the constitution. So one of the greatest problems is that teachers have to teach to the test not to actually learn. It is for this reason that I do not support our current public school system.
