@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
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.
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?
