I think the new curriculum is not good at all ("MSA warning signs," July 15). As a country, we focus more on test and test scores than we actually do on teaching these kids. The old ways of doing things were better and way more effective.
We should adapt with the time without compromising our children's education — meaning add on instead of taking away or switching up. Also, those making these decisions should not be people who never stepped foot in a classroom as a teacher.
When it comes to decision making in the state of Maryland, I see those who make the decisions are usually people who have no or very little experience on the other side of the table. As a result, they are often only thinking of one way to do things which would be their way and that is not always the best solution.
