The teachers all still do a lot of worksheets. There is little variety in the way they teach.

Posted January 26, 2010

My son is in third grade,and has a great teacher,but he has to spend way too much time on homework!They are in school all day and I don't think they should have to spend most of the night on homework.I know it's important but,it's not high school!The reading log they have to do every night is excessive!Once or twice a week should be enough.These are children not lit. professors.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
