    I couldn’t agree more with these. One of the biggest reasons I left public school teaching after only 7 years was because of our “curriculums”. They were scripted for the teacher, do literally all we had to do was read from the book, copy the worksheets/packets, and turn the page. The kiddos were SO bored. Often they were completing their packets during the “lesson”, tuned out completely, or refused to do anything which would result in a blue slip, trip to RTC, or the office. It was horrible to watch. Education needs to be exciting and adventurous!

      Oh that’s so sad! It’s really so good to have you share stories like that. People gloss over the actual experiences that are happening with kids in schools. We need people to continue to tell it like it really is!

      Thank you for commenting, Melissa!
