Why did your homeschooled students take a TAKS test?
My two home schooled students laughed after taking the TAKS test.
With all due respect to Mr. Turner...I bet he took his scholarship money BEFORE he labeled the system unfair, LOL!!
I am so tired of a system that teaches to the TAKS test because passing it is the only way to get more money to...teach to the TAKS test and turn out kids who can't learn and know so little.
SHOW ME THE WINNER...let the best and brightest compete to be the very best. If you need to change the grading to better reflect the "champion", do it. If a Valedictorian needs community service hours...make that part of it. But, don't try and make "every kid a winner" because they just aren't...in High School or the real world. We NEED achievers and those who strive...encourage that and let the cream rise to the top.
