The new curriculum for New York, “Next Generation”, seems to be just as nonsensical as it’s predecessor “Common Core”.
Have teachers been sufficiently trained in the new curriculum to implement all it’s parts successfully? I don’t think so.
Once again, New York is giving teachers no chance to escape the dreaded “Ineffective” rating, and giving parents and the youngest children entering the school system a lifetime of heartache.
Why can’t New York State Education Department policy makers set up a well-planned strategy based upon valid research into the unique ways children learn, instead of buying the next set of books handed to them by a political ally.
This makes no sense.
