"education back then was better"


I didn't say nor imply that.

Nor is 1885 even CLOSE to the middle ages.

OK. Sorry, Next. I misunderstood.

When the 1895 test was circulated several years ago, it was often used as "evidence" that American students were not as educated as in 1895. That's why I put on my boots and tried to stomp out any fires.

There are points about NCLB I like, but this one-size-fits-all approach in the American system of education is unrealistic and unwieldy.

^^ Thus proving my point. And they think that can make it all better by trying to split the classes up by level when it still doesn't help. I'm in a level A class currently and I must admit, the Level B classes do half the work, same test and tend to do poorly because of that. You should do the sme amount of work, just take longer if needed. Anyone agree?
