I agree with #3. As a teacher, I have been highly disappointed in MNPS's professional development, especially that Drs. Garcia and Johnson have done away with the high school subject area workshop day at the beginning of the school year. Several dozen teachers would make presentations in small groups and we'd pick the ones we were interested in, or that fit our needs, and learn from each other. Now, we have little idea what other teachers across the system are doing.

Rumor has it that one year the social studies teachers took a walking tour of historic parts of Nashville and someone in central office found that unacceptable. Well, I disagree, but fine, give them guidelines rather than scrap the whole thing.
