ASPD's insight:

The chef metaphor is excellent.  As a teacher, administrator, and teacher-educator, I have witnessed countless numbers of educators who wanted to truly teach.  While NCLB made a clear statement that EVERY student must be taught inlcuding children of color, the poor, and students with disabilities (for the first time in the history of American public education), so many in leadership thrust us into this teach, test, test, test, test model.

 

I am a STRONG proponent of CCSS because they set performance standards - i.e., prepare and present a 5 course meal.  What's done in the classroom rests at the classroom level.  As in universities, curriculum now TRULY becomes the purview of the classroom teacher.
