"Teach to the Test" is a thing. A very motivating, very powerful, very awful thing. This is why our students will be shit in the future as they are only getting the bare minimum they need to pass some arbitrary test some gov't official creates in an office somewhere remote. Meanwhile said official is sending their kid to private school cause "Fuck that shit yo!" they aren't having their snowflake fail in life..,And a gigantic chunk of teachers are fucking shit at what they do.
