At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the American educational system was desperately in need of reform. Private schools existed, but only for the very rich. There were very few public schools because of the strong sentiment that children who would grow up to be laborers should not "waste" their time on education but should instead prepare themselves for their life’s work. It was in the face of this public sentiment that educational reformers set about their task. Horace Mann, probably the most famous of the reformers, felt that there was no excuse in a republic for any citizen to be uneducated. As Superintendent of Education in the state of Massachusetts from 1837 to 1848, he initiated various changes, which were soon matched in other school districts around the country. He extended the school year from five to six months and improved the quality of teachers by instituting teacher education and raising teacher salaries. Although these changes did not bring about a sudden improvement in the educational system, they at least increased public awareness as to the need for a further strengthening of the system.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer..

People commonly complain that they never have enough time to accomplish tasks. The hours and minutes seem to slip away before many planned chores get done. According to time management experts, the main reason for this is that most people fail to set priorities about what to do first. They get tied down by trivial, time-consuming matters and never complete the important ones.

One simple solution often used by those at the top is to keep lists of tasks to be accomplished daily. These lists order jobs from most essential to least essential and are checked regularly through the day to access progress. Not only is this an effective way to manage time, but also it serves to give individuals a much-deserved sense of satisfaction over their achievements. People who do not keep lists often face the end of the work, day with uncertainty over the significance of their accomplishments, which over time can contribute to serious problems in mental and physical health.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions.

Last Monday morning, the students in Mr. Morrison’s science classes were excited. They were having their annual science fair. All of the students had worked hard to come up with something for the event, and they were ready to display the results of their work. There were more than 100 displays in the school gym. Some of the displays were large and impressive creations made by the students while others showed the outcomes of experiments that students had conducted in laboratories. The judges walked around and looked carefully at all of the exhibits. They took notes on all of them. Then, they spoke with several teachers before making their final decisions.

“May I have your attention, please,” said Mr. Morrison. “To begin with, I’d like to thank the students for the great work they did this year. This is clearly the best science fair we’ve ever had.” The students all cheered after hearing Mr. Morrison make that remark.“The judges have selected the winners of the science fair. First, I’d like to announce the third-place winner. I know she had a lot of fun doing her experiment in the lab. And the judges loved her work. So let’s congratulate Sarah Rafael for the research that she did on bacteria.” Everyone in the audience clapped as Sarah went to the front to receive her prize.

“The second-place winner,” said Mr. Morrison, “made a unique contribution to the science fair. He designed and programmed his own computer game, which I know many of you had fun with. Let’s congratulate Tim Simpson, the second-place winner.”After Tim received his prize, Mr. Morrison spoke one more time. “And now it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. The first-place winner’s work was breathtaking. In fact, I’ve never seen a better robot made by anyone. So let’s congratulate Molly Smith. She’s this year’s winner of the science fair.”
