They're using handouts from before they were teachers...

they have little to NO HOMEWORK. The only measure of whether they understand is by actually using the material and tests
The problem with this is that they have little to no feedback about how much they have learned before they are tested on it. A student is much more likely to learn the material if they did poorly on homework before the test than if they do poorly on the test. There is no motivation to learn it after the test has already been taken. If they know that they don't know the material well because of homework, they still have the motivation of a test to learn the material.
The United States invariably does the right thing, after having exhausted every other alternative. -Winston Churchill

America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between. -Oscar Wilde

Wow, even the French showed a little more spine than that before they got their sh*t pushed in.[^] -Colin Mullikin
