TAKS, unfortunately, is a NIGHTMARE to teachers & students. Teachers have no choice but to teach the test. I've been there, & done that. If students do not master , it is a reflection on them , teachers, & the district. Our legislatures need to be contacted.l As far as responsibility, that begins at home. Teachers can give lots of meaningful work, but students that aren't responsible don't do it. Do you fail them or wait? Low parent involvement is not due to the school not listening. It is due to low parent responsibility. There are many schools in Texas that enroll children.

The quality of the high school is the reason for the 1 star rating. The elementary and middle school could be 2 stars, 50% of this schools curriculum is teaching to the TAKS, which gets even worse in high school. There is no responsibility put on the students. School is 90% of a students daily exposure to life, it is a battle for the parent. There is virtually no homework given and what is given counts very little toward their grade, if they decide not to do it they are allowed to make it up or get extra points from a source of no benefit. The low parent involvement is due to parents concerns not being listened to. My child has been in this system since 2nd grade, if I had it to do over I would transfer him to a better system that includes real life standards where teachers teach.

The Core curriculum is one of the finest. It offers band, choir and art. Sports are over funded and emphasized. Parental involvement outside of teachers kids and rich kids is almost non existent. The superintendant is the best.
