Short and sweet. Read a blog post from this fall.
Then come back here and read about Common Core. I love the quote "We can't fix society, so we'll fix education."
Only problem is we are not "fixing" anything, we are glossing over the real problems. I sometimes get so frustrated and caught up by the hypocrisy of education reform that I cannot see silver linings or the good.
There are several good things about the shifts for the new standards and driving students toward resource based answers and comprehension. I do believe that. I just cannot see past monopolies and corporate looking takeovers. Someone please point me towards the good again.
