In the late ’80s and early ’90s, while I was teaching, I noticed a significant change in the goal of education. I usually didn’t care what the curricula or text said; I was interested in teaching my students skills to make the best choice for their lives. During this time, I noticed that the teacher’s manual changed instead of teaching knowledge and skills. We were now told to focus on feelings and common thoughts.

As a math teacher asking, “how do you feel about 2+2=4?” did not compute. How does that help you balance a checkbook? So I never asked those questions. We also were to focus on the group, not the individual. Individual excellence was not as important as the achievement and success of the group. The group got a name, and the group achievement got stars on the wall instead of naming individual students and showing their achievement. Students were given group assignments, and the fast learners were discouraged from finishing so fast. The others had to catch up. The dumbing down of everyone had begun. This evolution took about 22 years until one term when we came back to school, and there was no more old text for me to use. Everything was now to be done the John Dewey, Modern Education way. That year marked the end of my teaching career.
