Last week we had a teacher inservice at our high school.
The first half we discussed special education laws and what
we are required to do.
The second half we discussed Ohio's new credit flexibility
plan. Basically...if a student wants to take a
basketweaving class outside of school for Art class
credit...they can (if the school approves the curriculum -
and the teacher oversees the work done in basketweaving),
but if students don't like it when the school denies them
Art credit for basketweaving...they can appeal the
decision. And the kicker is that the school pays for this
So...these basketweaving teachers don't have to accommodate
It just doesn't make sense. Make the school's job
harder...yet make students less accountable.
I understand and like the idea behind credit
flexibility...but in my opinion the execution is wrong.
Next inservice topic: Grade Inflation
THIS MAKES ME LOL!
