I wish they would ask the teachers what we think. We are the ones that teach these children and see what they need. Nobody asks us, they just give us a curriculum and that's what we have to teach. Meanwhile, we see more and more problems and nobody is listening. I hope that are new president elect will do something about NCLB- this is doing very little for our kids. Teachers are frustrated with all this tests, children dread yet another open ended question when they can't even write and nobody is addressing this.

Very frustrating and the education is going downhill and that's not because we're not doing our jobs. The problem is, nobody is asking and they are just concerned with raising these scores. Where has the teaching gone?
