I'll tell you why I'm asking. I asked E a question recently that I felt he should know based on what I knew he was studying in a class. He couldn't answer it. He then told me that it wasn't something that was on the study guide so they didn't focus on it in class.
But it was something pretty simple.
Sure...he could recite the hard answers because he'd studied them since they were on his study guide...but the little simple answer, which would have proved he actually understood what was going on from a wider perspective...he couldn't answer.
So yeah...it made me wonder.
With the study guides, open book tests, and calculators...do you think your kids are learning in school or are they simply learning how to do well on the tests?
