I got into a discussion tonight with another teacher. She said that her district has gone into a pilot program being sponsored by the state where all the curriculum is laid out. It has what you are teachin, when you are teaching it, and how you are teaching it. More or less all lesson plans, tests, quizes, assignments, everything done. She said that "most" states are doing this, and that Texas is in a pilot year but it will be a required implementation within 3 years. I told her I didn't see how that could go over bc of the political bs and the publishing companies getting involved. She said it was already a done deal. I've googled it and looked on the TEA website and see nothing. So, my question is, does your state have a state mandated curriculum, and if so, who operates it and is it any good? I realize in theory it sounds great, bc a kid moving around wont miss anything as long as they just move inside the state, but this just doesnt sound feasible to me.
