Teacher TMAO turns in another great post on teacher autonomy:

As a teacher I should get to teach whatever I want because I know best and no one is allowed to determine if what I taught or how I taught it was important, valid, or successful because I earned tenure in the name of academic freedom.

That's the argument our profession makes. It's weak sauce.
Check it out.

Hey, I had someone ask me what is the different between Open Court and DI. Do you happen to know?

Hi. Ms. Teacher

They are completely different programs. The only similarity is that they both teach phonics first, systematically and explicitly.

I have something to send to you if you send me an email (found in my profile).
