This is a runon sentence could someone please help me I have tried changing it and still keep getting told my grammar checker that it is a run-on sentence.

Teachers are now teaching students the information that is necessary for them to do well on high stakes tests and not the curriculum that should be taught.

    Grammar checkers are often unreliable. That is not a run-on sentence.

  • English -

    Teachers are now teaching students the information that is necessary for them to do well on high staked tests-not the curriculum that should be taught.

    The dash adds punch and causes it not to be a run on.

    Or, you could write this:


    Teachers are now teaching students the information that is necessary for them to do well on high staked tests, which is not the curriculum that should be taught.

    But I like the sentence with the dash better!
