  • My son's entering 6th grade next year, and the same kinds of last-minute curriculum changes still happen all of the time. The entire month of January at his school was spent in prep for the Michigan Educational Assessment Program tests. (His school does score well on the test, but only though coaching like this.)

    What I've done is do a bit of curriculum editing of my own. He brings home work and I advise him on what's going to be important, and what's not. I give him extra work where I want to enhance the experience, and encourage him to finish -- but not necessarily work hard at -- the stuff that's not so important. He seems to take the cues pretty well.

    In a few years he'll graduate High School. His grades might not be in the top of his class, but I'm sure he'll be better educated than many of those with higher scores.
    • It sounds like you and him are following the saying that I too like to quote: "don't let your schooling get in the way of your education."

      I'm glad it's an idea that gets around. Otherwise, GAWWWD!!!
