    i seen something not too long ago, could have been on here im not sure, but something to the effect of they arent going to be grading history or something like that? ill do some research on it and see what i can find. i just found that outlandish. if they arent going to be grading it, why sit in it. and if they arent going to grade it, why not cut out physical education and math too? or we could jsut do away with schools ingeneral and go to manditory home schooling. put the burden of educating kids where it should go to, the parents/ guardian.

    Yup, it's the truth. Long ago history, geography, economics were seperate subjects, now it's taught as social studies. Interestingly enough, they are now doing away with social studies parts on standardized tests, thus you will see a decrease in time given to the subjects. Much as I like GW, the NCLB has accelerated the teaching to tests which will dumb down the entire curriculum.

    its about the only way to know your kids are getting the one-on-one help they should be getting with schools. but with schools the way they are now, and im only making this observation about the schools in this area, they dont get that. its also a good way to keep your kids away from the undesirables that some schools have.
