I know I have said this before, but I am going to say it again.

IMHO Race to the Top will make about any subject a pain if the district is taking a shotgun approach and trying anything and everything with unrealistic expectation and no real plan.

I have a colleague who was forced to move up to a middle school math position when our district reconfigured from K-6 elementary and 7-9 junior highs to K-5 and 6-8. She was not happy at the time, and still does not love the pressure that testing places on her as a math teacher, but she spends less time planning and grading than she did with a single sixth grade, all-subjects position.
