This is for my teacher friends and readers…
I read a most interesting article here about creating a single National standard for education. What??!!! Genius! Except, I’ve already thought about this idea a long time ago…..
Snarkiness aside, I think this is a move in the right direction. I’m not an Obama fan but since his administration is the one that’s endorsing it I will say,
“Bravo, Obama. Nice move!”
Did you see the part about Texas? (Jen O. I’m talking to you!)
“Alaska and Texas are the only states that declined to participate in the standards-writing effort. In keeping his state out, Gov. Rick Perry argued that only Texans should decide what children there learn.”
That just sounds Texan, doesn’t it? LOL! That did kind of make me quirk a bit.
Seriously though, I’m excited that there have been some major moves towards improving education nationwide. And, I’m proud to say Florida (who doesn’t always make the best education decisions) is starting to lay the groundwork to do this. Yessssssss!! Finally! Maybe I’ll get a raise now?? Yea, wishful thinking, I know!
