Daily Republic Letters: The mistaken way we educate our children

Cheers to the K.I. Jones Elementary GATE teachers for the yearly, two-day, hands-on program called “The Multi Intelligences Trek.” Finally, after a year of waiting, the GATE students were released from their textbooks and actually had fun learning, at least for two days.

Due to the wisdom of the state legislators, the state curriculum is directed toward the big five common core subjects of reading, writing, math, science and history, the premise being that knowledge of these as the core of knowledge is essential for everyone in the school system and you must know them to be successful in life.
