The fact is that this bill is potentially great and also potentially terrible. Half the country could abolish the idea that intellect is judged by a high stress curriculum. And the other half could be teaching the bible in schools. We cannot leave bribery, religion, and ignorance dictate the minds of half of the next generation; but we also cannot continue with the patterns that make school a bad thing. In New Mexico the only curriculum is what will be on the test, THE ENTIRE YEAR. The objective of a test is to see how well students are learning and how well teachers are teaching. But teachers are teaching badly if they are only teaching to impress the people who will fire them. At the same time, school curriculum could be chosen by the highest bidder. Out of the frying pan, into the fire.
