Question: I am a High School English teacher in Illinois. I am about to begin my 4th year of teaching and my school has now not met AYP for 2 years straight. I don't know what to do!!!! What are schools doing to meet AYP? Specifically, what text books, computer programs, teaching tools are being used. I am a young teacher, but I KNOW I am a good one. I just wasn't taught to teach to the test in college. Please, schools that have met AYP, HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Due to all the emphasis on the NCLB act,teacher are forced to teach the test or be fired. This will produce a person capable of test taking skill, rather than a well rounded individual capable of independent thinking or problem solving. This NCLB act was passed by Bush Administration and I pray when he leaves office he takes it with him,

Sunny Originally Answered: When is it a wise choice to transfer schools? Would it affect my transcript? Grad Schools?
I will worn you. With a GPA of 2.6, you will not even have your application looked at. They will not even look at it with a 3.0 but realize that you will need a 3.5 to be competative. I know a student with a 3.76 who did not get into one of her choices. Most schools take the top 40 applicants so your gpa needs to be at the top. If you want to continue trying, I would not pick bio as a major either. Just take your pre reqs for PT with your psy degree. Bio has too many difficult classes that are not required. For PT school, you need one year of gen bio, gen chem, gen physics, and A and P along with calc and stats You may also want to consider PTA instead.

The best reason to transfer, so long as you do not lose any credits, would be if the new university were an easier school at which to earn A grades. Check with the new school about acceptance of your credits before you transfer.

Please don't feel so personally responsible for your school's struggle to meet the ridiculous "AYP". The entire idea is ridiculous; I live in a town where the schools have managed to make AYP yearly because they started off so low that improvement is virtually inevitable. However, I teach in a district where AYP is harder to reach, because we began with such a high percentage of successful students. The point is to teach well, to help students learn how to think, and not to obsess about the damn government. At this point, I say, let 'em come in and take over all of the schools that don't meet AYP. No one seems to have a plan for how they'll pay for the wholesale takeover of the public school system when goals are not met in 2014.

There are a variety of coaching books out there-- I'm sure your Dept of Ed has a list of approved ones somewhere. Not sure how your state's test compares to ours (i'm in pa), but there really is nothing that will work better than simply teaching to the test. professionally repugnant, i know, but that's what works.

Lonnie Originally Answered: Public Schools vs. Private Schools Thesis;?
This is a tough one , I never went to a private school,but I am guessing they probably have nicer class rooms ,cleaner bathroom ,higher standard for cleanliness.over public schools in my opinion. I remember going to public schools and theres always some kids who smell like they never taken a shower. Or some who look poor. Con I would say in my opinion for private school might be uniforms everyone has to dresss the same ,or correction guys have to probably wear pants and dress shirt and girls probably have to wear dresses. Where as in my opinion from my experince where in public schools you can dress causual and not have to wear anything fancy required. You can say public school should have the same standards as private school,but as I mentioned before I have never been to a private school ,just been to some rich public school ,so in my mind I see fancy clean school, not to put any public schools down. Just the ones I went to were not that nice in my opinion.You can say we need to let public school and students should be given the opportunity to take advantage of what private school have to offer ,without the high cost for education and given these benefits ,it would help students by and basically from there you can say what you feel and put supporting facts in there. Well enough said good luck. These are all my opinion and none of this is factual just all opinion.
