We are teaching our children to be good little test takers, not critical thinkers. Also tenure for teachers must go! I'm all for unions but we also must put the children first. Fire those under performing teachers who are passing time waiting for retirement.

U.S. students are continuing to trail behind their peers in a pack of higher-performing nations, according to results from a key international assessment.

No, No, it's not the teachers or the schools... it's the kids....it's the parents.... its not enough money... it's poverty..... it's the tests.... yes, yes, the tests are rigged. The teachers are really doing a great job and the tests are rigged... lets go with that... that's the beauty of having an ignorant population, you can get them to believe anything!
