Does not Want to work – A student will sometimes refuse to do the assigned work. Students just like some adults do not want to work on any given day.There will be times that the student will just flat out refuse to do their work.

The problem in these standardized tests are that students at times will not learn the subject tater until May.These students are taking test that they have not learned about. Teachers are finding themselves leaving the curriculum and lesson plans that are in place to teach the subjects that are going to be on the Standardized testing.
The main issue is that the teachers are told not to teach the subject matter. It is such a catch twenty two. DO and don’t.
