    Loss of common sense!

    Schools are for teaching and learning.

    Forget the over usage of:

    * testing
    * assessments
    * accountability
    * charting
    * evaluations
    * mandates
    * national alignment of curriculum
    * etc

    It's crazy!

    These silly concepts, over the past thirty years, have proven not to work, and are very costly.

    Let's rely on report cards like we used to.

    Let's bring back the joy and fun of learning.

    Wouldn't be Utah if there were not another evaluation of teachers or schools in the works even before the last one has been tried. It probably won't be funded either -- one more unfunded mandate from the state to the schools.
