I absolutely agree with you about the high school diploma thing. My students know that as soon as they are of the legal drop-out age they can make more $$ working with Dad doing construction than they will with just the diploma and no construction work...

As far as higher education goes, I'm mighty pissed that after getting an M.Ed., any ole person with a degree in whatever content area can waltz on in and get a job teaching high school in Texas. Grrr.

I was really disappointed in cory's post. The test is not at all analogous to what our 8th graders must master....more like what we expect of SAT takers (only the elite got as far as 8th grade, etc.)
