    they are NOT going well - every year the students arrive less well prepared.  That's just for starters.

    More and more time is being consumed by paperwork, by mandated testing.

      about unprepared students. I would see them in droves among my freshmen, but my seniors were mostly on the mark. I would say my most depressing days were spent with unmotivated students. There were many I could not reach.
      I was math dept head when mandated testing became a necessity for graduation. It wasn't pretty. Much time was spent on test prep in grades 9 and 10.
      I hope spring brings a lift in your spirits. Please forgive me if I have been too familiar. Good luck. I look forward to your posts each week.
