benefit of a regrade or extra points. The idea is that in the American system a student can take a test and forget rather than slowly learn over the semester and show their knowledge at the end of the learning session. This system creates a country of people that have a brief knowledge of the world but forget much of it once they leave high school. Students are eventually separated by the classes’ levels such as standard, honors and AP. They are told to settle for easier classes instead of pushing themselves to do better. Why should they take higher courses? This actually allows for the transition between public school and college easier because they are used to demanding classes. Although usually when a student is seen struggling they are suggested to take an easier class instead taking the time to try to find out why the st udent isn’t performing well in school. The No Child Left Behind act has failed because it does not fix the problem in a rational way. How is the No Childe Left Behind act failed? The act caused teachers to only teach what was required for the standardized test knowing that their jobs at the school could seem vague in the future if their class didn’t do well. It’s clearly created a knowledge bar that was created by state, people who barely know what should be covered to what they think needs to be covered once and moved on. Who can blame teachers who are worried about their job because of a law? The separation of classes is what ’s needed to occur but in an upward fashion rather than a downward one. Instead of trying to get students to graduate with the minimum they should be working on making the each student graduate at level and then have AP and honors far above that. Students who wish to skip grades or advance further should be able to do so but students who need to be brought down a grade should do so with extreme discretion. The cause for a student to not do well in school is often not due to their intelligence but rather behavioral or study problems that can be fixed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
