Char at Weary Parent says that “teachers no longer teach kids to think” and that her kids are “bored to tears”. She says they spend most of their school time studying for ‘Standards of Learning’ exams. According to commenters too – the tests are really easy.
What is happening to eduction in the U. S. and what can parents do about it? It seems the schools and teachers are only concerned about the kids passing the tests and not about teaching them anything new.
And how to think critically is the most important thing kids can learn. If the schools won’t do it, parents will have to. The best advice I can think of is to look for opportunities in daily life to help make up for what the schools aren’t doing. And instilling a love of learning by example. If parents don’t do it, who will?
