  1. I agree with your analysis. A new approach, stop teaching a program that every child in school has to be prepared to go to Harvard or other high end institutions. Reading, writing and mathematics should be taught to the understanding level not a grade level but an age maturity level. The frustration of the children is in not being able to keep up. Try to eliminate grade level tied to age. The competition of parents for bragging rights for child genius has hurt so much.

    1. Don, thanks for reading the piece. You make lots of good points about how we need to make adjustments to meet the true needs of students. I hope some changes can be initiated before I’m long gone. Be safe, Bill
