tcan: Well, welcome to the real world where the company and the managers decide what the employees should be doing and how they should do it. Just because you work as a teacher doesn't mean you get get to do your job the way you want. Ask any wage slave out there if they think they know better how their job should be done and the answer will be yes. What makes you so special that you think you should get to do whatever you want.

right, why would we want the people we have doing the job to say how things should be done? Nonsense, that's not what they're paid for! They should be like any other mindless corporate cog and just drone in and out of work listening to instructions of overpaid overlords who've never taught a day in their life. That's the best way to nurture young minds, it's no different than nurturing these lines of code for BlammoCorp.

SavageWombat: My kid didn't test as well in math this year as last year.  Mind you, she still tested in the 99th percentile for her age group, and 3rd in her class, but the overall score was lower than before.  So her teacher and I are having to explain to a 3rd grader about "regression towards the mean" and how this doesn't mean she's "bad at math".

Turning a "bad in math" moment into a lesson in math - nice!
