Instead of going to school and teaching students on Monday, I have to go to a textbook adoption meeting. There are 5 stats books that we stats teachers will get to choose from, and we're going to hear from each publisher about all the bells and whistles--then we'll decide which one's we're going to pilot.
Except we're not really going to pilot them. We'll each use a book for about two months, then we'll choose another book and use it for about two months, and then somehow we'll all vote and choose which stats book to adopt.
It's such a half-assed way of doing things. This isn't how you test out a book to see if it's going to be the foundation of your instruction for the next several years.
That's how disorganized my district is.
