US profs and teachers see education very differently

April 12, 2007

A recent survey of 6,500 middle-school and high-school teachers and college faculty, conducted by national education testing organization ACT, found disagreement on almost every college-preparatory subject. Profs feel that high school students are not getting the courses that would prepare them for PSE, and believe students should be going more in-depth on fewer topics. Profs want more emphasis on basic grammar and sentence structure, and on the scientific process and inquiry skills (rather than specific content). The Union-Tribune
