"We can’t create a thriving, innovative, creative, vibrant learning environment and pair it with common standards supported by textbooks and assessed by standardized tests. The two ideas are diametrically opposed. To waste time and money attempting to force these two into a relationship would be as futile as Romeo and Juliet’s parents trying to keep them apart."

Greg Thompson gives a quick comment on this issue at his post below. Something worth considering as we look at less money in the budgets and the perceived need to "paint our school with data" to see how we are doing. Stop the insanity!
