The beginning of a great education system is having great curriculum. Diverse, masterful, enticing, orderly and sound, flexible and modern, thorough and in-reach.

To create a Standard curriculum (In Texas, this is called the TEKS) that will provide a baseline expectation will allow for a more effective and functioning education system. It is, after all, a system. A network, a web, a collaborative effort spanning thousands of miles. We have the technology, now is the time.
