Pitiful: New York Schools Failing Miserably

New York Schools have failed again in the educational system.  Countless dollars have gone into New York schools, and the districts within the state continue to fall well below average and remain dismal.  A new report shows out of over one hundred schools, 90 percent are failures through the state exams in English and in math.  This is two of the most used subjects in the entire school system.  Only ten percent passed, only ten!

A clip from the New York Post had this to say, “More than 140 New York City elementary and middle schools had at least one grade where more than 90 percent of kids flunked their state exams last academic year,” according to a Post analysis.

A total of 23 schools had at least one entire class where not a single student passed math or ­English proficiency test given annually to kids in grades 3 to 8.

“Behind these figures are individuals,’ said Yiatin Chu, a member of Manhattan’s Community Education Council 1, a parental advisory panel. ‘These are families who count on our schools to educate their children. This is ­depressing, and it’s shocking.”

So how that Common Core Curriculum, huh?  It was in these states and this area where it came from.  Nothing has created more confusion than the Common Core Curriculum.  It was a disaster from the start, and it is a disaster if they try to take away because it has already done its damage.  So keep giving more money into the education system in New York they all say.  Here is something to think long and hard about.  In 2018, the New York City Department of Education had a budget of 24 billion.  The public schools in the metropolitan area alone spent around $17.5 thousand per child.  In the areas where the cities are economically challenged, the budget went up to $30 thousand per child.  AND THEY FAILED!!!!

So, where is the money?  Where are the passing scores?  A middle school in Harlem had 57 eighth-graders take the math portion of the state test.  Not one of the students passed!  Another school was recorded to have 47 fifth-graders at Ethan Allen Elementary in Brooklyn take the same test.  They all failed the state exam too!  At William T. Davis Elementary on Staten Island, 57 third graders took the standard test, and one passed the Math portion while three passed the English part of the test.

One can only bury their face in their hands when the Department of Education spokesperson Danielle Filson was questioned as to why 90 percent or more are showing the failing scores out of 142 schools.  She stated, “This is actually good news.  Why? Because in 2017, they had more than 190 schools in that category.”

It will be legit to ask if the test itself is the problem.  But how hard can it be?  Not one person in some classrooms can pass it with a low average D?  Something is seriously wrong with this picture, and it needs to be fixed, but not with more money.  Unfortunately, these are the first schools where the teachers will cry for pay raises, and that is not to take anything away from the good ones.  If one child cannot pass in a classroom, there should be pay cuts.

Kids today have a lot more crammed into the curriculum than ever before.  They are forced to memorize everything instead of learning the material before them.  For starters, every child has a cell phone in hand.  Most today do not even know what the outdoors are anymore.  Money should be put toward getting these kids out of the house and doing something constructive.  Enough money has been put into education in that part of the world, and it’s not working.  If it hasn’t proven to be useful, then put the money somewhere where it can help these kids.

Support at home would also be a factor since there are more single parents today than ever before.  When there are both parents available, both have to work to make ends meet.  It would be a scary thought, thinking these teachers are not doing their jobs.  It just cannot be that many.  The city needs to look deeper into what the problem may be.  Most, not all of these tests require passing scores to move on to the next grade.  If the child cannot get past the sixth grade, how will the cycle of poverty ever come to an end?

  113. I really have to show you that I am new to blog posting and totally adored your article. Most likely I am inclined to store your blog post . You seriously have great article materials. Be Thankful For it for discussing with us your domain webpage

  114. You have made some good points there. I checked on the internet to learn more about the issue and found most individuals will go along with your views on this website.

  115. I think that everything posted made a lot of sense. However, what about this? what if you composed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean BLOG_TITLE is a little plain. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article titles to grab people to open the links. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.|

  116. Your style is really unique compared to other people I have read stuff from. Thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I will just bookmark this web site.

  117. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!|

  118. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Great work!|

  119. Hey there! I simply wish to offer you a big thumbs up for the excellent information you have here on this post. I’ll be returning to your blog for more soon.

  120. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours lately, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful price enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will likely be much more helpful than ever before.|

  121. This is a very good tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere. Simple but very precise info… Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read post!

  122. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your site?

  123. Hi! Would you mind if I share your blog with my zynga group? There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Many thanks|

  124. One other issue issue is that video games can be serious anyway with the most important focus on knowing things rather than enjoyment. Although, it comes with an entertainment facet to keep your sons or daughters engaged, every single game is generally designed to focus on a specific experience or curriculum, such as numbers or science. Thanks for your article.

  125. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  126. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!|

  127. After I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment. Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service? Kudos.

  128. I was more than happy to uncover this page. I need to to thank you for your time for this wonderful read!! I definitely really liked every bit of it and I have you book-marked to check out new information on your site.

  132. I’ve observed that in the world of today, video games are classified as the latest craze with children of all ages. Periodically it may be extremely hard to drag your family away from the activities. If you want the best of both worlds, there are numerous educational games for kids. Interesting post.

  133. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.

  172. I discovered your blog site on google and check a few of your early posts. Continue to keep up the very good operate. I just additional up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader. Seeking forward to reading more from you later on!?

  173. I?m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that?s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  174. Failed schools kinda goes along with liberals trying to ram their policies down the parents throats and indoctrinating the kids. Don’t think for a minute that the reason they are failing is because they haven’t thrown money at the problem because throwing money is all the liberals do.

  175. There are many reasons why children fail. A big one is the lack of respect for teachers and learning and the parents who refuse to teach respect and basic manners. “Inclusion” is also a problem. It takes way more of a teacher’s time for small results and therefore the average child has to sit and wait while the teacher is forces(and I do mean forced) to manage so many children with learning problems. Common core is a major problem. I taught school for over 30 years and I had trouble figuring out common core. It was a disaster and any decent teacher would tell you so but they do not ask the teachers before they require a curriculum.
    Teachers are required to teach many children who do not speak English. This is a huge problem. Think about it. An English speaking teacher with children who do not speak the language. And in a large city there may be many different languages the teacher has to deal with. How on earth does a teacher teach when the children can’t understand the language. I agree there are problems, but don’t put it all on teachers. We have a curriculum we are forced to teach. We care but we do not have magic wands to fix all the problems.

  176. I went to school in the city of Baltimore in the 60s and 70s and never failed a grade and I graduated and went in the USAF where I had enough common sense to do my AF job and also to get two college I had a son who went to what they tried to call a school in California and I have learned quite a bit by going to and than having a king in school. Throwing money at schools does nothing there have to be parents at home offering encouragement and also like what happened to my son where non English speaking illegal immigrants were given priority over American citizens and my son who was bilingual was pushed aside and he wondered why illegal immigrants were given priority while his Father,me was defending the country that was mistreating its citizens

  177. Maybe they should get back to teaching the important subjects and get rid of all the other crap they want to teach and indoctrinate kids with.

  178. If this is how far gone the problem is, then it has less to do with the school system. Other factors play an important part. Home environment and support of family members. Inherited values that do not place highly academic achievements as their life’s goal. These are just a few of the issues tied to students not scoring well in school. Why is the school system always to blame. You can throw the best of schooling systems at a student, if they do not make the effort for any number of reasons then the source of the problem is not the school system.

  179. I to am disgusted by the absurd results of the New York schools abysmal scores on the state exams.
    At the same time, however, I cannot help but wonder if the author of this article is a product of said system.
    At the end of the first paragraph, “…….over one hundred schools, 90 percent are failures through state exams in English and Math. (and then) This is two of the most used subjects in the entire school system”. English grammar like
    this is rampant in our society and the journalists who publish it are products of the system, not only in New York, but nationwide.

  180. You can say what you want but you CANNOT deny the following two facts:

    CANNOT, CANNOT, CANNOT.

    1) The Left has been in charge of our education for decades.

    2) Our education has been spiraling down the toilet for decades.

    1. The demise of education started in the early ’90’s. Prior to that time parents were willing to work with the teachers to assure their children were acquiring an excellent education. Beginning in the early ’90’s, parents wanted only one thing for their children – high grades. Prior to the 90’s teachers could, more often than not, set their own curriculum goals. Outstanding teachers not only worked very hard, but could readily determine what skills their students were lacking and set that as the base. During the ’90’s and going forward, testing companies gradually came into full swing. The new trend was leaning more and more toward teaching the test rather than taking the students from where they were and moving forward from there. During my teaching career I taught 4th, 5th and 6th grade students. I often meet my former students and nearly all express their thanks for my having challenged them by requiring them to put forth maximum effort in meeting challenges. Nearly all of these students have and are having great success in today’s demanding world.

  181. N.Y. City School District teachers have to handle non English Speaking muzlims… Honduran homeless mojados…. low I.Q. blacks who only speak in Ebonics…. El Salvador M.S. 13 five year old gangsters with tattooed horns and beards….! Would’nt be surprised if they all walked out and Let Bloomberg… Di Blasio…. Cuomo’s ….. & Horse Toothed Crazy Eyed Leader of the Squad of Sluts….! to take over….!

  182. We will soon find that teachers themselves will become obsolete. In many cases they are little more than baby sitters who are doing things that look like teaching but who are actually just spouting out a set of pre-cooked beliefs that the school board would like to have passed to future generations. Computers can teach much faster and can quickly spot a student who is falling behind. Computers can also spot students who are ready to move on to more difficult subjects and who are being held behind by the old fashioned classroom system. But the Teachers Unions will not likely let this happen since it would put so many of them out of a job.

  183. “This is two of the most used subjects in the entire school system. Only ten percent passed, only ten!”

    Just sayin…. shouldn’t this read
    “These are two of the most used subjects in the entire school system. Only ten percent
    passed, only ten!”

    Here we have an article about the shortcomings of the educational system in NY. Where did this writer study?

  184. The Schools are not teaching “Reading Writing and Arithmetic” but are INDOCTRINATING students on MISERABLY failing Left Wing GARBAGE that will wipe out the students’ REAL chances at life. This will take a LOT of REMEDIATION to fix this problems However, these MISRABLE “indoctrinators” need to be replaced with real HONEST TO GOD teachers to see ANY success rate whatsoever. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  185. This should NOT be happening in this country. Perhaps if teachers STARTED teaching our kiddies reading, writing arithmetic, our “Bill of Rights and The Constitution”, “Pledge of Allegiance”, history, geography, science, responsibility and consequences, and respect for others, starting with their parents and elders, instead of indoctrinating them with the BS curriculum of multiculturalism, diversity, revised American and World History, gender identity, #metoo, climate change, and the long list of liberal and socialist crap, then perhaps these kids would do better on proficiency tests, and in the real world. Now we know how socialism and communism will be the future of our once great nation. We are indoctrinating our youngsters under the guise of “educating” them with all the aforementioned pap and more. These generations are all in the mix to bring down our country as “founded.” “Snowflakes” are all dumbed down and do not know how truly exceptional their country is, and how millions of people have died to protect their freedom and rights. It doesn’t have to be this way. Parents need to get involved with exactly what is going on their local public schools.

  186. In this situation it seems as though New York city is pushing for the future of socialism, everything free, because these students are not going to know how to work and be dependent on the government.

  187. When I taught outside of Washington, DC, I had two Portuguese students, one Turk, one Korean and one Hispanic in my class–none of whom spoke English in September. At that time there was no such thing as ESL. I spoke “broken” Spanish.” By December all the children were speaking English quite well!!! Money is being wasted on frivolity. Parents are the ones that need teaching, too. Insist on parent involvement.

  188. obviously we need to raise taxes instead of demanding results from what we are already paying for. THAT ALWAYS WORKS.

  189. Come on New York taxpayers. The problem your not spending enough money per student. Don’t you know that the more money you spend the better they learn. It has nothing to do with worthless parents who don’t care about their children’s education and future. Parent who don’t discipline their kids and prepare them for life. Don’t teach them respect for authority, teachers and their elders. Parents who like the fun making babies but they are mentally babies themselves and are too put out of place to be parents. So you get what you sow with your libral policies. Enjoy all the dummies your making.

  190. The money wasted on teachers and schools could be spent better by furnishing every household with internet and a computer. Find the quilified teachers and pay them to teach . Set the existing schools up for annual testing requirement sites. The money saved on busing , building and ground upkeep, lunch rooms, sports, and lazy teachers would more than pay for a system of education like the above one mentioned. More money for teachers has proven to be a failure nation wide. Wake up America their our children and teacher unions are using them to hijack money not give your children a better education.

  191. Remember the bumper sticker that read “IF YOU CAN READ THIS THANK A TEACHER” We need a new one ” IF YOU ARE A SOCIALIST THANK A TEACHER”. Surveys have been taken that show a large portion of Professors and Teachers are socialists.

  192. I teach CPR here in California and I have volunteer at the Boys and Girls club Teen Center for free for the past 2 years. I only have 6 students at a time and I do about 2 classes a month. With the 2 year certification card they receive they get extra credit at their schools. NOW, after we do the “HANDS ON PORTION” of the class it’s time for the paperwork. I hold up the roster and tell them, “I HAVE TOO FAX THIS ROSTER TO MY TRAINING CENTER SO PLEASE PRINT YOUR NAME CLEARLY” I then would get 1, 2 students raise their hand and ask, “WHAT DO YOU MEAN PRINT?” I then print my name on the board and I notice that ALL of them struggling in printing their names. This happens in EVERY class I have done, I kid you not. If you know a teen, sit them down, give them a piece of paper and a pen and say “PRINT YOUR FULL NAME” say nothing else, just that. You just may be shocked.

  193. The teachers union has a mantra: “Pay more and you’ll get better teachers.” Really? What are they going to do 5% better after their raise that they are not already doing? Tens of thousands of them can do a “work stoppage” during the school year and descend upon the state legislative session, clogging both the halls and the legislative process. The excuse for low math scores? Lack of certified teachers. Their brilliant solution: Lower the certification requirement from 9 semester-hours of college math to only 6 hours because, you know, math is hard and scary. Zero discussion of helping those with enough guts to get the requisite 9 hours. 5% raise two years in a row “for the students”, and no assurance they won’t go for another 5 this year. Ya can’t make this stuff up.

  194. Here is how Democrats create generational dependency on them for everything!! These kids will never learn anything. Where are the parents? This isn’t just the failure of the educational system but also of the parents as well!!! But hey the welfare, EBT, and WIIK are all on the way so you can just get by for another couple of weeks and then go begging the government for more and blame hard-working people that pay taxes that they are not paying enough so these lay-abouts can demand more.

  195. Discipline is gone. Actually requiring anything cannot be done in today’s world. Teachers are just another generation of the same. What is the difference between “what have you done to my child”? Or, “Johnny, if you are misbehaving in class I would instruct the school to do what they need to discipline you, or I will”.!

  196. Wrong! “New York Schools have failed again” Is non-seance! Dumb-down education[the topic of so many books out now] Is working just fine! How else could you explain all the Hillary voting, abortion baby killing, Hell bound pervert promoting, Godless psychopathy ? IF it wasn’t for the Godless, Satan inspired Lib’s & Dem’s “education” / Group-think identity politics & brainwashing scam?

  197. ??How much more (wages and benefits) do the Teacher need to do there job??
    Most of them can not be that smart. If you go to College to be a Teacher your
    going to make less than $50,000/yr. coming out of College. If you didn’t know that, you do now.
    Most Schools hire Sport Team Coaches first then ask what subject can you teach.
    Or is it, 180work day/yr., Retire at 55, 8:00-4:00 Mon-Fri,

  198. THESE ARE THE FUTURE VOTERS OF AMERICA? WHERE WILL AMERICA END UP IF THIS CONTINUES? WE WILL BECOME A 4TH WORLD COUNTRY OF ILLITERATES ,AND THEN REALLY BE TAKEN OVER BY THE SOCIALIST THAT WANT TOO RULE THE WORLD! PEOPLE BETTER START TEACHING THEIR CHILDREN AT HOME,BEFORE SENDING THEM TO SCHOOLS RUN BY SOCIALIST TEACHERS,OTHERWISE AMERICA WILL BE DOOMED!

  199. WHEN DUMOCRATS GET CONTROL OF A CITY OR STATE IT GOES DOWN,,CORUPTION GOES UP, LEADERS GET FILTHY RICH CRIME GOES UP .

  200. Hire more of those socialist commie bustard’s. Maybe they should teach READSING COMPRENTION.
    Most people can’t read and follow directions. They can’t do basic math without a machine.
    It seams the educators are overpaid for the services they are providing.
    I cant believe that whole classes fail. There are smart kids that learn no matter what.
    Where are they. I guess well to do families send their children to privet schools.
    If I lived in NYC. I would send my kids to a privet school.
    I guess this what happens when the standards are lowered in the public school system.

  201. Why are so many Public School officials surprised that parents are putting their children in charter schools? These test show why, also the liberal teachers are lowering the standards of morals !!!!!????

  202. One of the unfortunate things in the United States is that parents want to hand over their children to the schools, and then expect the schools and the teachers to raise them into college ready adults. Regrettably that doesn’t happen and only results in generations of ill-prepared adults who do not know history, cannot do simple math, and have vocabularies that are exceeded by many trained zoo animals. When my children went to public school, they were fed at home, took a lunch with them, and now that they are college graduate parents, they continue to do similar things for their children. When you give responsibility to parents to raise and care for their children, you have a much stronger, more disciplined country, where your success is your success and it is not determined by government give-away programs. When I was a teenager, I was introduced to the New York state testing procedures when a small group of students from Rochester visited my high school in Toronto, and expressed the difficulties with the annual testing. Most of the friends of mine were pleased to know that it was the NY students who had to endure the rigors of state mandated testing and not us.

    1. Why does no one want to talk about parents not parenting? Parents need to be responsible for their children not the teachers. This is the root of the problem. No one wants to talk about this. Why?

  203. Time to start publicly executing these purveyors of cultural-Marxism, starting with the Superintendent of Schools.

    You see folks, they are not really failing. These kids are performing exactly the way the corporate globalists want them to. They want our kids to grown up dumb, BUT obedient to the administrators of global governance, the elitist bureaucrats appointed by the mega multi-national corporations and Western private central banks.

    Wake up folks, for all this identitity politics and talk of past slavery these corporate globalists are trying to do exactly that, brainwash a new group of people that will allow themselves to willing enslaved by the cultural-Marxists/world governance!!

    It’s all about controlling all the world resources and all the world’s people!

    1. Chuck: I agree with you completely, but I sadly feel that the bulk of the people affected won’t wake up in time to prevent the major damage being done to their children. This is indeed a sad state of affairs in New York, and rest assured DeBlasio, or Bloomberg could care less, they just want to further their political careers and try and impose some form of Socialism, or Marxism on the entire state and then to our whole country. You would certainly think as you pointed out, where is all of this money going, if not to improve the schools, and 90% failure is not acceptable under anyone’s standards. They need to start holding students back from advancing to the next grade, but the far left has already declared this is Racist and they must be sent along. What a bunch of crap! I am so glad I’m retired and have two grown daughters that were already properly educated under the old system, if you will, not this crazy political correct system that rewards students for doing absolutely nothing.

  204. Has anyone bothered to look at the same test administered to parochial or private schools? Maybe they will find the scores reversed or better? Then, (Oh, forgive me.) maybe adopt their curriculum and teaching methods and throw out the failures. Doing more of the same is not going to change the results, that much we know.

  205. IF BLOOMBURG IS REALLY THE THE KIND OF GUY THAT CARES ABOUT HIS PEOPLE , LIKE HE SAYS HE DOES, LETS SEE IF MISTER SOCIALIST WILL PULL A COUPLE OF BILLION OUT OF HIS POCKET AND HELP HIS SCHOOLS AND THE CHILDREN WITH THESE AWFUL PROBLEMS.

    1. What they need is to hire real professionals, Engineers, Scientists, Literary Scholars, Historians, etc, and get rid of the Education Majors who go into teaching. They are the lowest performers, on average, on SAT scores than other professions. They also have the lowest IQ scores , on average, than other professions. In the process, abolish the Schools of Education because they simply grind out thousands of incompetent education majors annually, who go into teaching because they are not qualified to do anything else. For those who ask why I downgrade education majors and teachers who major in education, it is simple, a major in mathematics education is not the same as one who majors in Mathematics, Science, English, History, etc. Education courses are watered down to the point that anyone with a two-digit-IQ could pass. This applies to education majors in Science, English, History, and all disciplines that your child will encounter in the primary and secondary schools. Also, get rid of the teachers unions because it is not “For the Children” it for their paychecks and benefits. The teachers unions have been milking the system for decades, and all society is producing are students who are denied and robbed of a good education.

    2. As someone who has been teaching for almost 30 years, I am “HURT” that I am viewed as having the lowest IQ score and that I teach because I am not qualified to do anything else. While I may not be as “WONDERFUL” as you are, I can assure you that I have 136 undergraduate hours and 108 hours at the graduate level and am not the “VILLAGE IDIOT”! As for those young people that I have taught over the years, many of them are physicians, attorneys, veterinarians, state representatives and senators, teachers, retired military, researchers, college professors, singers/songwriters who are on the charts and have received awards, etc. I like to think that I played a role in helping them become the dedicated citizens that they are, but what would I know as a “SIMPLE MINDED” teacher who has a degree in History and Education, two masters degree and a Rank I, along with a Literacy Specialist degree. (I may not teach my students a lot, but I can assure you they know COTUS in great detail and they can even tell you about eminent domain as well, since we spend the first semester studying COTUS! They will tell you that if they don’t know their rights, they can and will be taken away from them!)
      Most states and colleges/universities offer a MAT degree. This is a Masters of Arts in Teaching for those who don’t have a background in education and come from the areas that you identified above. Ironically, they get to teach while obtaining their teaching degree and I compare this to practicing law or medicine while working on your law or medical degree. It does not work all that well and teaching is a calling not a profession!!! I spend more money on my students and my classroom than I should, so that my students have the necessary materials to work with or a snack for them before they leave school to go home to a home with no pantry or larder nor FOOD. I am not wealthy, and while I belong to a professional educational organization for my liability coverage with no political contributions, I do not belong or contribute to AFT or NEA as they don’t represent me or my values!!!!
      I have one request to make and that is to invite you to come and do my job for one day as I am not only a teacher, but a social worker, therapist, Mother Figure, role model, cheerleader, nurturer all in one. Before you can teach them, you have to deal with all of the other issues that young people bring to the classroom that hinders their educational experience. I love teaching high school and look forward to going to work every day and watching the light that exists within those young people’s spirits as they learn. Teaching is a labor of love, not one for paychecks or benefits if you are in it for the right reasons! I have found that if you set your classroom standards high, have good classroom management skills and demand exemplary work, students will deliver for you and whether people realize it or not, young people like structure and learning! Rant over…IF you worry about education now, just wait! In the next five years, those of us who are considered the “Old Teachers” will be gone and you will see that the work ethic of those younger teachers are not where they should be. Those of us who are “LOW” have been the ones keeping the educational ship afloat on a sea filled with political sharks, critical community members, US DoEd, state education departments and those teachers who are not dedicated and are just riding on the ship because they have nothing better to do! There are still many of us who have not drunk the “RED Koolaid” and refuse to teach from a common core script like teachers nationwide do, as we want our students to be informed and productive members of society not “SHEEPLE”!

      PS: Check out the company that controls/owns all of the testing, software, textbooks, etc. and see who makes up their board of directors and follow the amount of money they are making from every state and what some of the content says in their books….

    3. I wish that you are not unusual in your studies and education, however, as a licensed engineer, I can count on one hand the number of good, qualified, well educated teachers I had in the public school system. Most were motivated, but really weren’t trained well enough to motivate their students. They also were limited by the curriculum required by the government. The results are even worse today with all of the pointless crap that must be taught. They must be taught about the 10 million different sexes, how white people have an unfair advantage over black people, and other stupid things, other than reading, writing, and math.

    4. Yes I agree, most school system have a hard time getting rid of Bad teachers because of the union. Both NY and Chicago had teachers that were removed from the classroom because of their behavior and crimes. They were eventually paid to leave, and the Tax Payers paid for it. I went to such a school, that had mostly light skinned teachers that treated the darker skin students with malice, IN WASHINGTON, DC. I dropped out and went to night that was a little better because i wanted to become an electronic engineer. The states must demand from the Unions that teachers be graded on how many of their students pass the tests. After two years of failing to teach their students, they should seek other employment. I tutored many young students after school who could not read, using comic books.

    5. in a perfect world that might work. in bloombergs world we need multiple focus groups and spread sheets and people that know what a spread sheet is. rich people should be like old soldiers. they never die, they just fade away. THATS NOT MEANT TO OFFEND OLD SOLDIERS.

    6. Primary school should be teaching the basics! Reading, writing, Maths before branching into socialist type lessons. Surely preparing for the future with a real groundwork in the basics are more important than whether to call a person him, her or they and zie, zer etc.
