standardize test dont properly gauge how much your kid has learn, it gauges how much they have been taught him to remember...yall have to understand teacher are graded on how many student past thier specific part of the test....so what do you think they teach....thats how you get raises and promotion in the educational system....Unlike myself i teach Teen Leadership
(6-12)...every child out there isnt going to college...so i prepare them to be able to adjust to society...how to approach people, how to shake hands, how to go for a job interview,,,you would be amazed how many kids dont know how to shake a persons hand the right way...or how to hold an intelligent conversation with thier peers little known a school teacher.....

i remember when i was in school the ESL students took the tests in a separate room with a teacher reading the questions and answers to them in their first language. And I'm sorry but by the time some one is in the 12th grade they should be able to read and write in English unless they just moved from another country.

When my oldest son was ready for school, age wise, he didn't want to go. I MADE him go, some days the teacher had to PRY him out of my arms. After 6 weeks we got his first report card. It was kindergarten so his report card was in blocks denoting what he would learn each six weeks. The only thing he could not do on the entire report card was TIE HIS SHOES! I took him out that day and bought the Hooked on Phonics. May seem silly to you guys, but it taught both my son to read better and daughter (age 3) to read.

All 4 of our kids (squoddys and mine) are in advanced classes and A/B Honor Roll students. School is a social activity.
your right school socializes kids or well at least its surpose to...the teaching comes from home...and i applaud you for being pro-active not retro-active:HC:

didnt read the whole thread. i agree with racer x, the THREE R'S are a must for basics. but ill tell you what i DONT want my children to be taught:

1. the virtues of homosexuality (its being taught in some schools in america)
2. how to put a condom on a fukken cucumber
3. the teachers political agenda.
