I really love this piece. I worked as a curriculum developer and finally realized that even the BEST curriculum means nothing if teachers don’t have ownership of what they teach. Open source curriculum allows teachers to collaborate, customize and innovate. It recognizes teachers as practitioners and facilitators of education, not just deliverers of content created by outside “experts”.
