We can find anything we want through the internet. The internet can be abused but we must educate our children so they can use it effectively to their advantage. We definitely need to make most schools have the internet in classrooms, there is no doubt about it. Internet needs to be in the classrooms of schools in the new millennium. If you can’t get on and surf the internet by yourself then you are looked down upon.

What is called truth must contain its own meaning and is worthwhile to exist. Painful or dangerous truth can be distinguished into two types: one of them is those truth judged by the society which contain bad or passive meanings itself while another kind of truth doesn’t define to be negative but may cause pain or danger when people heard others revealing about it. As for teachers, their responsibility is not only teaching students the basic academic knowledge from books, but also need to pay attention to their mental and psychological development and try to build up a healthy and harmonious environment for students to grow up. However, we cannot avoid danger and difficulties along the way when children growing to maturity. Aiming at finding the best way for children to grow up, many people start to question about the things teachers should teach and doubt whether teachers should reveal some painful truth or not.
The principles of this nation are based on competition, whether that is something we like about our schools or not. There needs to be something to differentiate students based on ablility and work ethic. Yes, a skilled teacher should be able to attract student’s interest in a subject without the threat of a grade looming, but isn’t there something special about that perfect grade for a job well done? Even a devoted student may find him or herself willing to let assignments slide if there are no consequences for their actions. Ultimately I feel that the problem within schools is not that there are tests; it is just the way that these tests are formatted.
