Have Aliens Taken Over Our Schools?

For the next month, teachers and principals are going to be given instructions, by their state education departments, about curriculum, instruction, and methods of evaluation which are complicated, poorly formulated, contradictory, and virtually impossible to implement without stifling anything creative going on in their classrooms. They will be wondering if they suddenly landed on a different planet, or whether aliens took over their schools. Welcome to the start of a new school year in the United States. The people in charge have no idea what they are doing or else are trying to discredit public schools so they can be more easily privatized. No you’e not crazy. They are!!!
