Seems to me like all they where focus on was taking practice NECAP tests to pass them. Dont get much home work and all the fundraisers for Technical improvements for schools I hear are to get the teachers IPOds touse in school. Think they could apply themselves in class more and leave ipods at home. some put students into groups and let the smarter kids in clas run groups so they can search there pc's. Do research at home teach in class!
