Here are three comments from a recent thread here:
First comment by Eric Herman:
The high school program I send my kids to is SUPER traditional. 4 years of “mastery” of a textbook syllabus. Disgustingly traditional. Painful. Embarrassing.
I have proposed to my principal that I rename my class and he is supportive! My report to him on our last HS & Elementary teacher meeting revealed classroom practices that even my principal called “disturbing.” I teach a different subject. I don’t want to get confused to be teaching the same subject as the high school, so no one thinks I’m trying to prepare kids for the high school. I don’t want any association with that.
