RE: My "150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address"
Good educators are the best judges of what works. However, much of today's curriculum choices have been thrown into think tanks - people who often have no practical experience. Reading and espousing educational theory and trying to make it the "law of the land" doesn't mean that those responsible for preaching these theories can cut it in the actual classroom. You need to walk the walk before you talk the talk. Sitting behind a computer and searching for scholarly words to throw out to make one appear all-knowing doesn't cut it.

Good Educators are the best judges, and normally, very dedicated to their area of expertise. This is precisely why it was very aggravating to know that they only provided "input", in developing the common core standards. IMHO, key educators, should have been appointed to develop the infrastructure and key components, of the common core standards.
