12. Standards in teaching should not be dropped BUT

The SAT is a horrible test where there are specific strategies that are taught to those with means so they can do better. Itís an industry. It hurts the disadvantaged.

Common core was a national standard that was great, it was well defined so that curriculum developers knew all requirements, and students in one state were taught the same as students in another state. The problem with common core, the thing that gave it a bad rap, was the testing and how they scores were used (as a metric against teachers and schools). Also, some schools would not allow teachers to teach the way they saw fit, which really isnít common core, but more a bad admin decision.

But, please drop the SAT. I got a 350 in math and got a degree in engineering, and nothing lower than an A- in all math classes.
