Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lansing District Curriculum
Lansing schools’ English Language Arts instruction is based on Kansas College and Career Ready Standards For English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects that require students to develop reading, writing, comprehension, and fluency skills that can be used in all academic subject areas and fields of employment. The standards also encourage students to engage with and work to understand a wide range of texts and media. This integrated approach speaks to the goal of developing scientific and cultural literacy and the ability to independently gain knowledge in any subject.
Lansing schools’ math instruction is based on internationally benchmarked standards that require students to develop the ability to reason abstractly, use appropriate tools to solve math problems, communicate precisely, and construct arguments that explain mathematic processes. The standards encourage students to use these skills to solve every day problems.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Vocational Training
Anybody who has read the Common Core Standards (CCS) knows that they are designed to produce “college- and career-ready” high school graduates. However, one look at the CCS and many schools’ curricula will tell a person that educators often focus on college readiness, with career readiness coming in a distant second. It’s time to for schools to realize that all students won’t and do not need to go to college. Many students will bypass college and enter well-paying and rewarding professions that do not require college educations. Schools can help prepare students to enter those fields by putting more effort and money into developing vocational training programs and shop classes. Yes, today’s schools are teaching the next generation of mathematicians, teachers, and doctors, but they are also teaching the next generation of plumbers, HVAC specialists, and carpenters who can use innovative scientific knowledge to create innovations in these fields.
