There are so many ways that our education is broken and if we continue to suck the humanity and creativity out of our classrooms we are doomed. Why are we not teaching children to learn instead of take tests. Why are we not answering questions? Why are we not teaching them to read. We are stealing our children;s education by our attempt to teach to the middle and create an average student body. Look into your child’s eyes and see if test taking should define who they are. Or are they more? Isn’t the world here to explore? Or should we keep them in rounded hallways so they don’t see the blood of their spirit flowing on the floor?
If you really want to see a society of mediocrity come to pass than you should support www.corestandards.org . If you don’t stand up and protect your child’s education and their child’s education. They can’t protect themselves.
