I Am A Non-trad StudentThis means I am an adult going back to college later in life(age 55). I see an appalling level of ignorance in the students coming to college straight from high school. They have no comprehension, spelling, or research skills, and many lack simple common sense. (My room mate's 18 y/o daughter couldn't understand why there wasn't a supply list for college like they send out for K-12) It is obvious that "teaching to pass the tests" is an utter failure.All the testing in the world will not turn out an intelligent generation.
I am planning an entirely new teaching career after I get my Masters just because I truly fear growing old and having this generation of morons in charge when I get around to retiring!
