    that the people in the south have lower learning standards than people up norht? my teacher said that teachers aren't as good and stuff. like if they took the friggin mcas[ which is a bitch to do] they wouldn't do so good.

    please tell me why they aren't getting better learning experiences.

    i live in Georigia and we have some of the lowest standardized test scores in the country

    my teachers say that this is mainly because here, EVERYONE takes all of the tests, and this brings down our average whereas other states don't require each student to test

    and about the teachers, i've had great teachers; maybe it's because they were all Gifted/AP teachers, but they knew exactly what they were saying, used plenty of useful examples, and even made some of the content interesting; best of all, the teachers treated us like actual human beings with emotions

    North Carolina was ranked 49th in teachers pay when I lived there. It doesnt neccesarily mean the standards are lower, but the teachers get payed much less.. so lower standards would not shock me.


    Edit: I went to high school in Los Angeles and my school won all these awards for being one of the highest ranking high schools in the USA, but most of the kids in my classes (normal english classes) were functionally illiterate, while a handful of students were honored and won decathalons etc. Teachers just pass people whether the kids know anything or not. IN other words they spend more time on the 'smarter kids' and take it away from the dumber kids, but shouldn't that be the other way around???




    The southern states I've been to have been more old fashioned and one reason teachers might get paid less is it's considered a womans job. All women being considered married (lol) people would pay them much less assuming they had husbands who earned the money in the house. Another reason is that unions (wut?) are frowned upon so yeah no teachers union, no raise.

    But NC had some really high quality Colleges: NC state, Duke University, and though I dont know much about other southern colleges, I bet there are many southern colleges as good as the northern ones.

    Of course nothing beats the state of Mass. as far as schools. That entire state is like a college town, and many of them are ivy league.

    Whats bad about SC is that the rural areas in the country have bad schools that bring us all down, but the schools in bigger more populated areas of SC have better schools. Really, its a matter of countryside.

    most people in the south have their priorities in the wrong places, hence a poor education.

    I live in suburban Dallas, and the schools here are some of the best in the country. I think the High School I go to has been ranked in the top 100 public high schools in America.

    I'm a high school senior in Kentucky, and there are a lot of dumbasses in my school. I would say there are only two other people as smart as me in a school of a thousand.

    The biggest problem with our test scores is that the Eastern part of the state is like thirty years behind because the coal companies fucked a bunch of the towns in that part of the state.

    The state will probably drop the standarized tests or change it to something esle because they have a goal for 2014 that is out of reach, and no governor is going to want to take the blame for that.

    Texas has some of the strictest schools in the country, here they don't fuck around with education, we are one of 2 or 3 states to have mandatory standarized tests, these tests are a pain in the ass and if you fail them then not only do you not graduate, but if you do not pass the tests the first time then you do not walk the stage at graduation, which pretty much should be a damn crime. The tests, called the Texas Assesment of Knowledge and Skills(TAKS), are guarded like fucking Fort Knocks, there is a law that if a teacher helps the student in the test in ANY way, the teacher will get 5 years, yes that is 5 years, in federal prison. Because of how fucked up the schools here are we have a high dropout and failure rate. This does not necesseraly mean people in the south are dumber, just maybe in the north education is not as important as it is down here.
