• Why are public schools teachers terrified of school rankings and standardized tests?

    Best answer: Because they can't stand the thought of actually having to do an acceptable job, which would be shown up with low rankings for their students. How dare anyone inspect the results of their teaching and demand improvements if they are found wanting, that's why unions are so popular amongst teachers, to fight... show more

How dare anyone inspect the results of their teaching and demand improvements if they are found wanting, that's why unions are so popular amongst teachers, to fight on behalf of incompetent teachers, so they can continue to draw a salary even when their students are illiterate and innumerate.

    I'm in AP World History. At this point I just want a B There was a test today I studied more than anyone for, and better than anyone. I watched a 99 minute long video the teacher posted and took notes, I re-read the textbook pages and redid lots of my notes. I went to tutorials and got extra review time. I took the test and I was finding it quite easy, I understood every question and felt confident in my answers There were 40 btw, and our test is graded 2 points each. YET I GOT A 76. A 76 on the test. I studied, I understood everything, and I got a 76 on the damn test. Wtf is this? How?? How do I get better at AP world history without ruining my life and studying every 5 minutes? I don't freaking understand. Last semester I had an 88 and I was so close to an A. This semester I started off thinking I would get the A but now it's almost going to be impossible. AND IT'S JUST HISTORY, IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE SO HARD!

  • Will I fail those 2 classes and not get my credits?

    Best answer: I would talk to the teachers ahead of time, explain the crisis, and make arrangements to take the exams before you leave.

    Even if you don't fail, you will really damage your GPA.

    I’m in year 10 and I’ve always found maths way too hard. But today I scored 2/40 on my test and 3/40 on the other one. My teacher said we shouldn’t be too scared because Its our first time doing a higher paper and one of the highest scores was only 16 but I just feel really down about myself because I did revise but nothing I revised was even on the test. I just really suck at maths and does anyone know any different techniques for revision? I want to try some. I’ve just always found maths so hard but when I get out of school I want to do law or something. But yeah I feel super upset bc everyone else think their score isn’t bad bc they got 13 but they’re like “oh atleast u didn’t get 2 or something” like gurl I’m the one that got 2 and everyone else does so well and they hardly even revise. Should I be this upset and sad? (I’m in the second highest class)
