Curriculum design, that’s where basically all the crimes are committed. That’s where the bogus theories and the defective methods are integrated into every classroom so that no child will be left unscarred.

None of this could happen if the process were rationalized. Experts would propose ideas that are then carefully tested in the field, that is, hundreds of classrooms. Nothing would become operational in a single school until it had been proven for several years.

Some of the biggest transformations in American education were done almost overnight with very limited testing, if any. (For example, Whole Word, New Math, Constructivism, Common Core.) This haste— this unseemly haste— tells you that we are dealing with thieves in the night.


If this is your area, please look at this interview with Siegfried Engelmann, one of America’s few great educators. He is the apostle of doing it right.
