C.the us education system in crisis.

I think the correct answer is A.

Why not B or C-> The use of ''but'' in the second paragraph requires a somewhat negative title; we can ignore paragraph A because the author has changed the flow with ''but'' in the second paragraph. Using contrast is a popular technique to stress the intended message.

Why not C -> The passage focuses on children behaviour at school, not the system itself. System is a more general term.

Why not D -> This title requires classifying the goals with transitional words such as in addition, furthermore, also, first, second ...

It is also possible to classify them without such words, but the use of ''but'' in the second paragraph lets us eliminate this option.

Yet, there is only one goal stated in the paragraph, which is momentary peace. I cannot see more than one goal there.

Shortly, what you see before ''but'' is not what the author means to say.

For me A answer, it seems a fellow from Turkey hit the nail on the head.

C

A

I go for A
Behaviour management = standard disciplinary methods

may do more harm than good = far from resolving children's behaviour problems...exacerbate them. They sacrifice long-term goals (student behaviour improving definitively) for the short-term gain of momentary peace in the classroom.

A

A

B.how to improve behaviour.
If the students behaviour is molded in correct direction then absenteeism will be reduced,corporal punishment will be reduced as well as long term goal should be easily achieved.

I think A is the best choice.
I eliminate others because:
+ B. The passage stressed the consequences rather than solution.
+ C. The problem lies on US's educational management system, Not education system in general.
+ D. Only feature the second paragraph.

B

A, I THINK A ISRIGHT ANSWER.

A

I think the answer is B

A

It should be "A".

A

B

A

A) Behaviour management in US schools may do more harm than good.

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

A

The first paragraph describes current behaviour management methods, and the second paragraph makes it clear that these methods are not working.

exacerbate = make problems worse (do more harm than good)

Here's why the other answers aren't suitable:

B - Paragraph 2 makes it clear that the current system is not working well. So no good solutions are given.

C - The passage is about behaviour, not about the WHOLE education system. Nothing is mentioned that suggests the whole system is in crisis.

D - Long terms goals are only mentioned as a small detail. This is not the topic of the whole passage.
