1. In many schools, we teach to the lowest common denominator, 7th grade level material.

 

To pass the California High School Exit Exam, a student needs to provide ~66% or higher correct answers to Seventh Grade level questions.

Of course there are exceptions, some have very high achievement levels, but these are the exception, not the rule.

Proposition 13, poor funding, wandering directives, too many administrators playing with the money, social experimentation in the classrooms, overcrowding and inconsistent practices are among the causes of this.
