That's an excellent companion article. With the increasingly heavy and sometimes heavy-handed push for standards and testing compliance, we have made it less and less safe for teachers to do anything except follow along in lock step. We've crushed innovative thinking from students and teachers. It's starting to change, but that change is incredibly slow.
It doesn't sound like it would be tough, but it can be incredibly difficult to move beyond thinking about current (perceived/real) limitations. We need to build safe environments for the supposedly impossible ideas.
