Dear Dumb Bi+ch 02.27.07

Picture it - the meeting our grade level had this a.m. with our campus admin

RE: The information we heard from the LOWER grade levels who were invited to attend a workshop to jump on the latest language arts bandwagon for our district (whereby we will be teaching all subjects, including math, through reading!) and at which the presenter told everyone that if a student is not on grade level by the time they leave you it is your fault as a teacher (which I don't personally have a problem with, because for our grade it is mandated by the state anyway!)

Dear Dumb Bi+ch:

In light of your overwhelming expertise in the field of elementary curriculum (from your administrative post-graduate degree after spending a few years teaching high school music!), I have the following issue with the latest language arts program that you are shoving down our throats. It has been brought to my attention that this new upheavel in our teaching methods is all "supported by scientific research." I would like to interject that the existence of Bigfoot is supported by scientific research also, but that doesn't mean that I am going to jump in on that line of crap either!
