Looks like the old Left-Wing Liberal "tests are a waste of time" methodolgy is out the door. "Classrooms without Walls"..."pass/fail" have been replaced with "Order in the Classroom" and "A - F grading" is back. "Welcome back, Kotter" and "The Prime of Ms Jean Brodie" mentoring instead of teaching is gone too. School Districts are issuing "Dress Requirement Rules" for teachers have become the common place once again. We are seeing "Charter Schools" in the forefront of the return to "Old School" education from the 1940's and 1950's when students "learned" and teachers "taught".
AND IT CAN'T HAPPEN SOON ENOUGH !!!!
