Clip to ScrapBook #7

I worked in a urban school district and had a colleague suggest that parents checks be held up until their children were in school and behaved. He said that would be the only thing to get parents to buy into their childrens' education.

Quote:
We need to scrap the primary curriculums, and go back to developmentally appropriate education, especially for K-1. Jamming direct instruction down little kids' throats is NOT helping them learn to read. Kindergarten should go back to learning social skills, letters, and counting. Because that's what 5 year old brains are developmentally ready for. Not finding the main topic of a paragraph!
Could not agree more.
