"theyl forget ur name by the time u leave for the next grade". I have to disagree there. You can't generalize that for all school. In fact both my grade/middle school (it was all one school k-8th) and high school I have ran into teaches from there I haven't seen in 5yrs (since HS) or 9 - 10 years since middle school, and they still remember me. Asked how my mom was doing etc. But I also feel that, especially my grade/middle school, was a very good school because it is a smaller rural school. There was a good teacher to student ratio, and your teacher knew every kids parents by first name. The teachers didn't just shove the information down your throat, they helped you to learn it. The teachers actually seemed care if you succeed in life. From what I have heard of other schools from my siblings after we moved, and from friends who have been to several different schools, my grade/middle school is one of the best schools around, because it is a small school.
Here's the thing. Very few schools have intentions to create a great learning environment. Schools either are trying to process the greatest amount of students and just get them through, or private schools are trying to get students into the best universities. Few schools are trying to make the best learning environment. I heard of one university that simply has an honor code, and so students take exams whenever, but everything relies on the honor code (and they assume cheating never happens). Sounds like a school that prioritizes learning. But then again, the school probably does not admit just anyone. I think this is complicated because people come in with different strengths and weaknesses. Add that to their home life and environmental issues, I wonder if there is a simple answer. Reducing poverty and inequality is a start.
Uhh most schools dont care, if its public all they care about is good rating as in good test scores. they will FOCRCE u to learn over there, but not care about you and theyl forget ur name by the time u leave for the next grade. with private school, they care more and are willing to take time to teach any student who is willing, rather than force everything down ur throat
