When I read the words "lets play school" it reminded me of "lets play doctor".......:3oops:
I was just talking to a colleague yesterday that we get good data together, but decisions seem to be made contrary to the data. Seems to defeat the purpose of collecting the data. Just saying.

IMO one of the worst things schools have done, because of government regulations, is to require students who are not are not SPED and need 1-1 or small group instruction, to stay in the classroom as their least restrictive learning environment. Many schools place SPED, 504 students, and other struggling students in the general population and expect teachers to provide for their individual needs. In other words, classrooms have 20-30+ students and teachers are expected to individualize instruction.
Then states, at least the ones I'm familiar with, throw in so many curriculum topics that many students have trouble keeping up because teachers must provide instruction at a pace so fast that students can't engage in material the amount of time, and the number of times necessary to learn content as well as critical thinking skills they are expected to master.
"Disaggregate" is a perfect example of a word only a bureaucrat or pedant could love.
