Funneling our Children Through the Unknown

If all children are to be funneled through the same set of standards – that must be taught in their entirety in order to pass the common core-based state tests, which are necessary for a school to get a grade of A-C so as not to be taken over by their state or a state contractor – and these standards have never been tried or tested or studied, or even read prior to acceptance into state law – how do we even have an idea of what the outcome will be for children?

Three Kinds of Lies

Mark Twain wouldn’t have liked the Common Core either because the proponents have to use lies in order to sell them. Lies such as that the standards are “state led” – they are not local in any way. What about the lie of “college-ready” when you have professors saying they don’t meet the needs of colleges? If the Common Core were that great, they’d sell themselves and not require a campaign of lies to do it for them.

Common Core Cuts Classics

The Common Core cuts classic literature down to between 40 and 60% of the standards and promotes writing over reading. Without rich language to read, it is harder for children to write and children must read before they can write. Rich language stimulates intellect!
