    I am a 8th student at this school and when im at school i dont feel safe most of the teachers are good and the kids are bad. and i dont think that we should do PACT it makes me really scared that im going to fail!!

    I don't think students should take any pact tests the teachers that are teaching the child should be the one that knows what they know and if they know it enough to go to the next grade. All these tests do is make the child upset and scare that they will fail making them think they are dumb because of the tests and teachers talking about them to the student if they get a low score. it really don't prepare them for the future or to go to the next level I think if the teacher think that the child knows enough to the next level regardless of the pact score. I have to to some teachers about the pact and they don't agree about taking the test and some parents also but that's my opinon and I'am just one person. The teacher that teaches them should be the one that will give them a test that they made up to determine if the child should go to the next grade. That's just my beliefs. child is ready to leave that grade and go to the next
