Why Teachers Don’t Have Enough Time to Teach State Standards

Why Teachers Don't Have Time to Teach the Curriculum

So what do you think?  Should state departments of education give school districts every single standard they should teach?  Should districts have more flexibility?  What if states determined the most important standards for students to learn?  What if states developed assessments for just those most important things?  Why is it that the same folks who tell districts how many days there must be in a school year are also the same folks who give too many standards to teach (at least well) within that 180 day period?  Am I missing something here?
