NNoamfer, my comment was personal accountability for cheating. That it`s the individual not the school`s fault. Other wise, I could steal from my boss and blame the public education system. This is about holding people accountable for their choices. People failing would be the education systems fault, if they all fail, but cheating is a personal choice that reflects the individuals morals.

And cheating is not limited to students. Atlanta School System had their cheating scandal where the teachers were improving the test scores of their students.

I usually don`t care much about Neil deGrasse Tyson, but I wholeheartedly agree with him in many thoughts, this being one of them.

@Gerry1of1, Read the comments I made. Finland changed their educational system and got big results. Here`s an example.

What? .... WHAT!!!?
Stupid ass lazy kids don`t study and, because they have no values {parent`s fault} the kids cheat and that is the schools fault? Jeezuz Christ on a Cracker, no wonder kids don`t have any sense of "consequence of action". They`re not held responsible for anything they do. Great greasy gonads of God I hate this type of libretard stupid mentality.

NDT sank even lower in my estimate of him. I didn`t think that was possible.

@chicagojay, How would you explain Finland`s dramatic shift with their educational success right after they reformed the educational system? Was the generation of kids learning with the old system just lazy like that, and by coincidence the next generation are not lazy, just when the system was changed?

Most kids place a value of ZERO on learning, so It is not hard to value grades more than that. Please, dont blame the system when the kids may be lazy losers.

@ruthless1990, I can not remember the last time I studied for a test, but I can tell you it wasn`t after 3rd grade, and I did it no more than maybe 3 times in my life. Yet, I`m doing very well on exams, and in contract, some of my friends that do study do terribly.

Now I have my final exams, yet I`m still not studying and doing well.

I also never did homwork in my life, yet I got the highest score in the class for History final exam.

tests should be a way for teachers to see how well the students are learning and what areas they need in help, and they sometimes are, but for the most part test results are just numbers the teachers punch into a computer that goes toward our grade point average.

I did very well in school and university. However, is that because I`m "intelligent", or does it just mean I`m good at doing exams? The two are related, but different things...

@CrakrJak, Of course, and you are right about the studying for tests thing, but some thing are universal and also obvious, like starting school at an early hour and age, or stressing kids with grades and exams.

Studying for exams is not what is harmful to grades. It`s HOW one studies for tests and exams that determines success or failure and not every method of studying works the same for everyone.

Schools teach one method of learning, maybe two if your kid gets a good teacher. The regimented way we teach our kids, in such a rigid format, is leaving many students struggling to keep up.

School was easy for me, too easy, I wasn`t challenged enough, got bored, never studied and still got passing grades. However when I did "Study" got `A`s at will, usually when there was an actual reward for doing so.

Not everyone is motivated like that, not everyone seeks the same rewards or fears failure. Learning is a much more individual thing and we should identify what kind of learners or kids really are and teach them accordingly.

@MelCervini, I see you didn`t get his message. He means that students are more concerned about passing tests then actually learning and understanding the subject, which is expected since this is what this school system is all about really.

It`s true, take the Finnish school system for example. Check it out, it`s the most successful system so far and it has barely any tests. Other researches show that starting school at an early age hurts development, shorter recess hurts kids` functionality in class. Starting school at later hours like 9-10 showed improvement in performance and grades (to the surprise of nobody), graded tests and studying for exams has also been shown to hurt the learning process.
