So, i'm reading up for my upcoming SAT in early fall of this year and
I was reading through the grammar and vocabulary section and many times i had to just scratch my head when i looked at some of these words. Not that
I'm saying that i have a low vocabulary but some of these words on the SAT sound like they've been made up by 89 year old admission officers at
As i'm reading these words, I come to the conclusion that public high school education is a joke. Most of the material in the SAT book i have had to
learn on my own. Including some of the Algebra and Vocabulary words. I realized that most of this stuff wasn't even taught or just looked over as too
hard for the students, which is a shame because i take in new material pretty quickly. (granted that i had learned everything i needed to know, i
would be going through this book rapidly)
The problem is, the teachers have become lazy, go way to slow on the standards, or underestimate their students to a point where we are missing out on
vital information that could help us in future exams. Sure, there is the occasional airhead that is behind all of the class, but does that mean,
teachers have to oppress the rest of us that want to learn?
Does/Did anybody feel this way during their years in high school?
(perhaps this is some conspiracy made by the republicans to dumb down the younger generations so there wont be any more new liberals trying to make
their way into government
