  •  So the problem is (0+ / 0-)

    at least with respect to the math standards,
    that they are rigorous (they "stress skill acquisition")?

    Or a slippery slope argument with no basis in reality (how exactly does high quality math instruction cause science instruction to be "eviscerated'--maybe what we need is similarly rigorous science standards).

    •  I'm not against rigor, (0+ / 0-)

      I'm not against standards, I'm against non-educators deciding what students should learn, devising the test to measure the learning, using the test in ways it was not meant for, and excluding educators from the process. I'm done with this debate.

      If I had one wish, Republican men would have uteruses.
