Retired teachers lunch yesterday ...4 have been retired since 2013 and one has newly retired. The conversation turned to teaching post 2013 and it was horrifying. No desks in classrooms now just low Japanese style tables and large exercise balls for chairs. Chromebook time mandated daily as well as sending them home for homework. At home they are often used without supervision and even "loaned" to older siblings. They are brought back to school with content inappropriate for young students. No PE is allowed before school only standing in classroom lines where, according to our new retiree, they fight. Superintendent visits unannounced, videotapes whatever lesson is going on and posts these lessons to district websites. And more. I am so glad to be free of the whims of the BIG IDEAS currently being unleashed. I am sorry for the current batch of students.
