Waiting on Curriculum



    Much of Millsaps College is in transition such as this classroom photographed, Thursday, June 22, 2006, in Jackson, MIss., as they prepare to become the summer training camp for the New Orleans Saints. Classrooms such as this one in Sullivan-Harrell Hall will be equipped with projectors and tables with chairs instead of the student desks to accomodate the football players attending their specialization meetings.

    After much news about California voting to adopt national curriculum standards, it's now time to wait, as Louis Freedberg of California Watch points out in this smart blog post.

    Implementation could take years, Freedberg notes, and it's not clear where the money to make changes will come from. That provides plenty of time -- and plenty of fiscal excuses -- for this reform to unravel before it happens in California classrooms.
