It's unfortunate to see that today's curriculum is all over the map. Maybe my memory deceives me but I recall more time spent covering subject matter, and building on initial introductions to that subject. Today the entire subject is spewed out to the student one day and the next day the same class presents something completely different. I have even found mistakes in the given subject matter. To conclude my child has to become a memory machine for the weeks curriculum with minimal knowledge retained due to the current process.
