English - Cscope

Woodway, TX

#1 Feb 1, 2013
I recently retired after 27 years of teaching ENGLISH. My TAKS scores were usually the highest on our campus. Then along came new administration who began to tell me I did not know what I was doing, that I needed to teach what the students need to know-not what I thought they needed. They took away reading and told me to use Cscope. I tried to use the document and still teach grammar; whereupon, I was harassed until I retired. Our students are not being taught English grammar after the 6th grade in most schools in Texas.

At Mclennan Community College, there are as many remedial courses as they have credit courses in beginning English courses. This is a result of Whole Language. We are producing a generation of functional illerates . I have given up (too old) to keep fighting for your students. Please take a stand against watered down courses in education
