This is something I have been talking about for some time now, to anyone who will listen.
School is no longer about educating in America. It is about creating a work force. It doesnt matter whether or not you are learning the material, it is all about learning to follow orders.
I work in a middle school, and I can tell you, first hand, that free thinkers are separated and labeled, that the questioning of authority is by far the worst thing a student can do.
Kids who ask too many questions are now grouped with autistic children. Kids who think outside of the box are removed from mainstream classess all together.

Any chance of taking this issue up with another Educator in the same field?
Be polite, be respectful - but let the Administartion of your school know you take your grades and performance reports seriously, and get that second opinion.
Sometimes all it takes is taking to someone who isn't as "close to the problem" you are experiencing with your Teacher.
Best of luck.
She tells me all the time how big of a joke the education system is.
