thanks for going through it for me. much as i suspected. [i’d considered it on and off through the years]. now I don’t have to go through it. I figured it’d be a frustrating experience for me, and in a few short sentences, you’ve just confirmed my suspicions.
I took a few child psych courses in college. A few years later, in the ‘working world’, temping, I did some fun courses in elementary education. MAJOR difference though. Elementary education was “Grade 13″… nothing new in there.
The child psych stuff was far more useful.
Unfortunately, I’m not surprised. When i read up on some of the “education psychology” (wtf is that? It’s just as weird as it sounds – why would there be a psychology for education?) behind Common Core when it was being released, I was REALLY bothered and wrote a lot about it.
Now it’s falling apart. I’m *so* very grateful.
