I blindly trusted NY State 5 years ago, with the implementation of the Common Core Standards when they began building their freaking airplane while it was still in the air.
I trust my children's teachers who are the true educators. I trust them to be able to make thoughtful and accurate decisions regarding my children and what they are learning. I can not trust individuals who are so far removed from the classroom that they're unaware of what is happening in the classroom from one day to the next. I can not trust a system that has not yet proven itself and by its own admission has been full of mistakes, confusion, and inappropriate standards.
I can not trust you, NY State, when your system is still one big guessing game that you're just holding your breath... hoping it might work.
Still Refusing in NY State,
