Re: “S.C. Department of Education wants to eliminate classroom size restrictions

Artrogue - you are not comparing apples to apples when you throw Japan and other countries in the mix. They track children and send only their highest achievers to college and the other to trade/VOC school. We don't do that. Also the charter school comparison is not good either. They don't have to take low achieving students, students with learning disabilities, or those who get in trouble. When you get to choose who you teach, it makes a difference. Also, with so much emphasis on test outcomes as a means for assessing student achievement and school performance, the instruction of students has been watered down and has become tests driven. I teach in a suburb of Atlanta. The whole testing fiasco in the ATL indicates a deeper issue than just cheating (that was wrong), but the pressure to have high test scores to get funding creates a stressful work culture and the kids lose out.
