???? how can you compare high school to elementary?
That statement is true, due to the fact that especially in the US. It has been proven that students learn the most in elementary and decline in high school. So comparing the two is difficult due to many different things involved.
But I do get your point in stating that now teachers only care about making sure their school gets an A on the state test.
That is in part due to the recent No Child Left Behind Bill. That causes schools to do better on state test or lose fundings that they need.
But to COCO. You must be very simple minded if you can not see what I meant. I am not using streetwear to teach me writing skills. How is that even possible? Instead I have started a blog in which I will use to write about topics that interest me. Which will then help me become a better writer.
And like stated before you can not become a better writer in school. I have done extremely well in English and writing all my life. Received an above average score on both state and SAT testing. Teachers have always told me I am really gifted in English but still do not push me or even the other students to use writing.
But thanks for the feedback.
