He broke up a fight. Knife or not....that was a good thing.

Not sure there is a simple solution.

The current switch to the Common Core curriculum is a positive first step. It places a lot more emphasis on critical thinking, students must explain their reasoning, etc.

My hope is we will eventually move away from standardized multiple choice tests and begin to utilize performance assessments. In other words, give the student a real life problem and have them justify their answer. These are much harder to standardize, though, so I won't hold my breath.


Exactly, the testing can only be tailored to what is easy for one teacher to grade for 30 plus students thus the teaching system is more built for the teachers than the students. This of course is not in your control and I know you do the very best you can. Its the system. Hope your summer is going good.
