    As a retired teacher I would say this is the learning curve for any test.

    I was once told that soccer on TV was boring because 90% of the action was off the screen. Seeing as the camera follows the ball I have to wonder at all the action where there is no ball.

    Amazing how some things never change.

    As a teacher I think the only way education will improve is when concerned parents begin to monitor what politicians do to the system and speak out against changes that they disagree with. In the province I work in our government constantly tries to “improve” education with “progressive” changes to the system. Usually these changes are designed to do little more than save money, but they look good while doing so. Teachers under their contract cannot speak out about these changes, it is the parents that must monitor and question what the politicians do.

    I always get discouraged, being a teacher, that of all the activities in school that students participate in, the one that consistently gets the least recognition, and is in some situations almost discouraged is academics. In our region for example we can no longer recognize our honour and high honour graduates as that is exclusive of other students. However, we are still encouraged to have an awards night recognizing athletic excellence, and excellence in other extracurricular pursuits, on the assumption excellence in these activities is somehow more inclusive.

    I suppose the difference is that the athlete is working for the college or university he/she is attending, an institution that is supposed to care about the well being of its students, and they are not working for a large corporation where the care of its employees may not be uppermost in the corporate mind set.

    Diamonds are Forever is like watching your favourite pervy bachelor uncle? That’s the one he picks? What about the last three Roger Moore Bonds. Those were everyone’s creepy pervy bachelor uncle.

    But can you find a more private place for some quiet while reading? I find few people disturb me while on the throne, but sitting back and relaxing with an open book seems to send out an open invitation for anyone to disturb me.

    As a teacher I agree with most of what fbjsr said. If we could avoid the social engineering, get back to teaching the fundamentals, and set up better vocational programs then the system would be better off. Additionally, we have to set up better programs and/or schools for those students with learning difficulties, not just throw them into a regular classroom and hope that they learn something while being included with their peers. Finally, Dogday88 is quite correct, most of the worst and some of the best ideas come primarily from administrative levels and governmental levels, usually produced by someone who has not actually taught in years.
