Standards 1, Current Research 0

This is from Mary Beth:

Hey Ben –

I am working on a paper right now about Standards for my Masters class.  I was poking around the NC Dept of Public Instruction site (NCDPI) because we were going to move there a few years ago and are still planning to retire there.  So, I started to poke around in their WL standards, and OMG  – I am appreciating Maine right now! They are seem very stringent and tight on what needs to be done, when.  I also notice that they seem to expect the kids to do a lot in the prescribed levels.

I feel sorry for CI teachers in NC!  (no wonder I haven’t noticed any from there.)
