Yeah, imagine that

The link to this New York Times piece was sent to our local homeschool list.
"Imagine, for instance, a third-grade classroom that was free of the laundry list of goals currently harnessing our teachers and students, and that was devoted instead to just a few narrowly defined and deeply focused goals.

"In this classroom, children would spend two hours each day hearing stories read aloud, reading aloud themselves, telling stories to one another and reading on their own."
Wow. So innovative. Think anyone will take them up on it?

Which reminds me, I have to go and get ready for school this week.
