Some leading causes of low test scores in children

  1. Discipline - How much time is wasted of each class interrupted with teachers having to discipline disruptive students? According to Dr. Bulach, around an average of 30 days per school year is wasted with getting the class back on track.

  2. Churn - Teachers do not stick around for long once they figure out how little actual teaching is going on in their classrooms. With too much stress, poor culture and climate, constant interruptions in the classroom, teachers are leaving between years 3-5.

  3. Anxiety and Fear - Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is not valued and implemented within the school environment. Basic needs of security and safety are not met for most students.

  4. Parent Involvement -  The huge lack of parental involvement in their children's schooling creates an environment for students that negatively impacts test scores.

  5. Openness and Trust - Teachers are not open and trusting with each other or their administration or their students.
