Standarized Tests IV

I realize the previous post might seem extreme, but it is nevertheless useful. We see that the way children study is equally if not more important than how a subject is actually taught. Given that we live in the US and that educators can only play, at best, a limited role in the child's education, it is best to set exceedingly high standards of studying. This is necessary so that when most children fall below the standard, they will be studying at a level necessary to adequately learn the material and/or do well on standardized exams.

This is akin to a negotiation, given that usually one must compromise and give up certain demands, it is best to start by asking for more than what you want. In the process of teaching one will usually always compromise and give up certain standards, so it is best to start the class by asking for more than what is needed.
