How our schools turn children into monsters



I've never been very interested in Ayn Rand until someone told me about a 1970 essay where she explains how Progressive education turns children into monsters.

Does The School Schedule Serve Teaching and Learning?

Considerations about scheduling and faculty assignments for 2018 - 2019 are more than likely in the planning stages right now.  In states like New York, much remains tentative until the school district budget is voted on and passed, but the development of the budget requires planning conversations and a course of direction. Often, last year's schedule is simply rolled over with minor changes, most reflecting grade level and course enrollments. The schedule is framed by start and end…

Are you concerned with curriculum design?



Curriculum design, that’s where basically all the crimes are committed. That’s where the bogus theories and the defective methods are integrated into every classroom so that no child will be left unscarred.
