School Reviews

  • Recommended May 17, 2010 - Certain math teachers do not help students that need the help. My child has math teacher Mrs.Hope and she needs help with her work. I do agree that she should study and do homework a little more often, but i see her trying so hard to understand, she has cried because she is so scared that she might fail because she doesnt understand. She has told the teacher that she doesn't understand, and the teacher blammed it on her, saying that she doesnt work hard enough and doesn't do home work, while here at hime I see her frustrated at the fact that she needs help, and Mrs.Hope just won't help her. - Posted by Parent

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
