SOL is an apt name

The SOL's have perhaps harmed as much as they have helped. They are prescriptive to the point of directing teachers how much time, down to the minute, to spend on each sub-topic. It strips teachers of flexibility and creativity, and in turn students have become scripted, uncritical in their thinking, and incapable of truly learning and acquiring knowledge. More an more college professors speak of freshmen arriving incapable of learning in a college environment, despite AP classes, standardized performance, etc.
