I was lucky enough to have been trained by The Ed Trust in assessing assessments and about how to approach teaching underprivileged children. Ed Trust is not an advocate of the curriculum reaching children – rather, they want us to teach the children how to reach the curriculum. In other words, the content of the curriculum and our ability to have the students get it is much more important that simply watering it down so that they can easily access it. That, too , was refreshing to hear. They preach that teachers must teach the curriculum, forgo the pity that comes with broken students, and get the students educated, not pardoned.
