Today’s FFA, changing with the times.

Today, I had the opportunity to attend an FFA sponsor luncheon, and it is amazing how this organization has changed with the technology of today. Sat with an amazing teacher of the year and talked about how parents and students need to understand that the honors pathways are not the only path to college! Many already know that reading and math skills needed in vocational pathways are inline with college ready, and have the relevance needed for todays students. Folks, we continue to focus on adding more and more math and english to our school days, but unless its relevent to the students in the classroom more time will not equal better test results! Instead of beating the round pegs in the same square hole with a bigger hammer as NCLB is asking lets find the right hole!
