There is no way that teachers are ever consulted. It is the book publishers way; the test publishers way; the out of the classroom, the know nothing downtown administrators way.
There is no way for the teacher to put personality into the lessons and instruction.
There is no way to plan the lesson to meet the needs of the entire class.
There is no way to hope for mastery, much less remediation or review.
One size fits all lessons means that there is no way that the needs of all students with various learning modalities with various learning domains are met.
If you had a public education before the test dominated curriculum became the imperative and you ask if your child is receiving the same well rounded, versatile education with some fun included that you had, the answer is NO WAY!
