It's all about the teachers. I had a good chemistry/physics teacher and learned a ****load. It isn't a standards problem. Nothing happens if you don't meet the standards. Getting rid of shit teachers is what isn't happening. The standards, in theory are a good idea, but the system is so broken, fixing the standards will do nothing.
