The rantings of a teacher who retired from the classroom but not from education.
And the experiments continue.
Totally not surprised!! You realize that this will result in a generation of teachers that will become stupid because they no longer have to create meaningful lessons. All you need is a test prep book and answer key.Schoolgal
A local middle school, at one time one of the best (if not the best) in NYC has instructed its English teachers to give back the anthologies. They are no longer teaching English literature, but are teaching from packets. The kids do "independent reading". This is supposedly because they have been ordered to use that absurd Columbia University Reading and Writing program. What anti intellectual garbage!! This is just more social engineering imposed on our society by "the powers that be". The teachers won't be the only "stupid" people around. With "stupid" citizenry, the government can do what it wants; democracy depends on an informed electorate, not an ignorant one.

Yes. Those "zanny Nazis"!To think that burning books is way to keep warm. Some people never learn.
