Thinking and Linking by Joanne Jacobs
A community college cancels instruction to work on its mission statement? Yes, it’s a parody.
The sad part is that I see this actually happening due to the new Common Core. We’re devoting extra staff days, planning time, and after school periods to rework our curriculum documents to be in compliance with the new standards… and as our dept chair says, there is absolutely nothing in the Common Core that we aren’t already doing.
So, as the parody suggests, we’re wasting valuable time that could be used to actually perform our intended duties to do nothing more than to make our school seem like its cutting edge and in touch with today’s ever-changing (but not really) reality.
Ach! When will we see redistribution of wealth at the community college? Mr. Plumber! Mr. President!
