    • I think that teachers should do their best to recognize an individual child’s learning style. I know there are time constraints that will keep a teacher from teaching to each child’s style but at least they will understand why some kids may be falling behind and some are excelling.

    • That’s right, Bernadette. The testing system isn’t good. It really hampers the teachers’ ability to teach.

    • Thanks ladies for your response.  I agree with both of you regarding the testing system.  Our district requires so much testing and focus on the scores.  It’s politics and the educators don’t go for it.  This year at some middle schools the district is going to have teachers totally accountable for the students learning.  If the students fail, then the teacher failed.  It’s making a lot of teachers nervous and I don’t blame them.  

      Cynthia and Bernadette, at our school there are teachers who are on top of it and take note of the students strengths and weaknessess and utilize teacher’s aides, tutors or specialists as well as recommend to the parents after school homework club.  Unfortunately, sometimes it’s the students unwillingness to learn despite the available services.  Teachers will give feedback to the parents and then we are all held accountable.
