Fl Standards in student speak, why bother?

Have you ever read through the standards for Florida or any other state? How about England? They communicate, usually, the objectives or outcomes a student should attain by the time they leave the year/grade.

Something I learned, and loved, when I was over in England was working solidly from standards rather than publishing materials. Truthfully, we didn’t use much prescribed publishing materials and it was rare to find a teacher’s manual. Much different than in the Florida. I could sit at my desk and surround myself in manuals if I wanted.
