The American education system has never been one to excel. Our mathematics department hasn’t shown much promise when compared to other countries. Why? How come we have never been ranked as the best education system in the world? This is because of our lack of care towards the students. Teachers are not taught to teach their students in different ways, resulting in only a few of the students to comprehend what is being taught.

Everybody learns in different ways. Some people will hear something and it will click with them forever. Others might be able to learn only when they do an activity hands on. The ways people learn varies greatly and there is not one way to teach everyone. I, myself, have always been a visual learner.

If we continue to limit our teaching abilities and increase standardized tests we may deteriorate in our nation as a whole because we would fail at creating successful future generations. We need to take action as soon as possible in order to increase our intelligence in not only the mathematical aspects of our education but also as a
