Teaching for the test is not developing analytical thinking skills. Several college professors told me students are not prepared for college math and science classes when they begin college. They see it as a crisis for the future of our country.

Drilling students is not teaching, anyway. If students are having a difficult time grasping a math skill the teacher can't keep working on it until they get it, because the teacher has to stop and start teaching another subject. Everything has to be taught at a certain time. Good teachers hate this.
