Mile wide, inch deep curriculum

As educators we continue to hear about how Texas has a ‘Mile wide/inch deep’ set of curriculum standards. To further prove that point, Dr. Bill Daggett of the International Center for Leadership in Education says, “Texas hasn’t met a standard it doesn’t love.” As if we didn’t know that.

As we look at several examples provided by Mary Ann Whiteker, Superintendent of Hudson ISD, we know we are responsible for a wealth of information with three sets of standards per subject to teach during a school year. Take a look at the information provided and see how our teachers are doing an outstanding job at taking a poorly designed STAAR system and getting positive results.
