If today is Tuesday it must be time for another education manifesto. This one comes courtesy of teachers who want to focus on instruction over content. Andrew Miller writes, "it comes down to one major point: We are professionals. We know our students. We know what they need, and yes, we use curriculum and pacing guides as what they should be -- guides!" I understand the appear of a manifesto or a declaration, but I think they lose their value with overuse, and in education, they have been very overused recently.
