The Editor: What is ” common core ” in education, Lois ?
Albert Einstein Cat: Let me start with how we teach at Cumberland. We teach Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic, to begin with. We also teach Social Studies, Government, History, Biology, Personal Finance, and a Miscellaneous Course for stuff we missed.
The Editor: Is there a set goal/test result/promotion for teachers, etc. ?
What Happened Here Cat: No, the goal is to give every student the best education that they can learn. They can’t be put in categories. There are general rules, but nothing is written in Quikrete.
Every one needs a basic course in social interacting. You also need a basic understanding of history, unless you want every generation to start from inventing the wheel. We don’t want this to happen to our graduates.
The Editor: What about these ?
Smart Cat: College isn’t for everyone, some children are prepared for vocations, like nursing, electrician, mechanic, etc. The parents have to help with reading and thinking. Here are the hot jobs for the next ten years.
