in reply to RE: RE: Education? Anyone?
in thread The most important issue for me in elections is:

It is true that the average cost of a private education means that there are some schools at which you can get it for less money. (Specifically in my city, I don't think there is one private school that goes for less than $7000.)
True, BUT 1) most private schools offer financial aid for families that can't afford. 2) have you ever checked you might be amazed how cheap some private schools are.
Jeb Bush judges schools on standardized test scores, which, in my opinion, don't show anything about intelligence.
I'd like to hear a better way to measure results.
Just to get a passing grade under Jeb's system (the tests aren't very well written, by the way), teachers have to spend half the year teaching to the test
The test SHOULD (I haven't actually read it) be based on things that are sopposed to be taught anyway. people say the samething up here about the MCAS tests, but the questions are all about what you'd learn anyway.

erix learned the word 'portaging' not so long ago (from vikings lugging their ships from one river-system to another)
