Who starts these trends?

Teachers or the Feds?

Some questions:

Hmm? Has the Head Start program reduced poverty?

Has standardized testing improved learning?

Hows that common core working out? As good as cooperative learning?

Why are a third of our college grads from another country?

It's FAR to soon to evaluate common core success or failure at this point. Perhaps in McAllen Texas one can tell at a glance. Perhaps the schools there need to have a new evaluation plan every year as Utah schools have had the past several years.

Use something for a prior to uninformed replacement with someone else's new idea.

@Steve Cottrell:

You don't get it. Do you?

Let the teachers, school administrators, and parents plan the curriculum.

Why the feds with their pathetic record of over spending, and poor teaching strategies?
