Times Union to parents, stop complaining you have no idea what you are talking about.
That was the gist anyways in a piece about how parents are concerned about the new math curriculum.
The reporter sited several district coaches and teachers that said, settle down, it may take time (years one teacher said) but we are on the right track.
The Times union must have found the only four teachers in the district that like the new Common Core engage Ny curriculum as I hear constantly that it is between a disaster and not so great.
With just a minimal effort the Times Union could have presented an alternate point of view that showed many teachers are frustrated with the new curriculum as well but instead of choosing to inform the people of Jacksonville they chose to parrot the district’s all is well message, and like the district they are doing our kids a disservice.To read the TU piece click the link: http://jacksonville.com/news/2015-10-20/story/parents-stumped-elementary-math-blame-common-core-standards-duval-new
