I hate it.... but I understand why it has to happen. We have gotten used to a huge amount of surplus in the schools. As a result we are used to "extras" that make life nice. Extracurricular programs, sports, new technology when the old technology was working just fine. Unfortunately, with No Child Left Behind, there are soooo many mandated programs and interventions that have to be done, it takes away from the things that make school nice and enjoyable. Add to that larger classrooms, books that are falling apart, too hot/cold classrooms and it makes it difficult to learn. As a teacher, there are many projects that I cannot do because there are too many kids in the classroom and I wouldn't be able to properly supervise them. As a result there is a lot of lecture time because that is the most time effictive way to get to a mass of people.
