    We need to look at our school system with a more "macro" lens rather than just this "micro" obsession over the various components and flavors of a standardized curriculum.

    And thanks for sharing those objections raised by districts about people controlling the pace of their own education.  The industrial bureaucratic paradigm of schooling is the "water" many people "swim in" without really even realizing it.  I think that unexamined paradigm is behind those reasons you were given.

    I also think our higher education system has some culpability here, getting caught up in juicing the market for their "product" by pushing for kids to just stay in school year after year rather than really taking the wheel of one's own development.
