    I know this I was mostly just trying to be antagonistic.

    Speaking as a nurse.. .. ..judging teachers based on “objective” standardized tests is like judging doctors based on how many of their patients get sick vs how many they cure. These are but "symptoms" of that which is wrong in our society on the whole. Improve our society and our schools will follow. Quit sending jobs away and denying healthcare. Contrary to the rally cry of the right, people do want to work. If the religious section of our society would do some self goverance then they would not be losing face and turning people off to that. It seems that all those who speak of how we as a society should live are not living that life themselves. It cannot be "Do as I say; not as I do" anymore. People are too saavy to have that game run on them anymore.
