Classroom chaos? Critics blast new Common Core education standards

A full year before students around the nation submit to the new Common Core standardized tests, the federally-backed program is already causing chaos and confusion at local school board meetings, in the classroom and at the dinner table.

As critics fear Washington is poised to take control of what and how local districts teach kids, school administrators are adopting new curriculum in an effort to ensure their students outperform their peers and parents worry that their children are being used as academic guinea pigs. As the program gets closer to full implementation, a full-blown backlash is developing despite assurances from supporters that it is merely a test aimed at establishing a national standard. ...

Everybody feels their educational programs is the best, it involves the youngsters you are focusing on and what you are attempting to accomplish with them, development, freedom, basic speculation etc.Self-regard, self-esteem with Dissertation Help . On the off chance that you need my assessment, the inventive educational modules is better it advances autonomy in kids and basic considering.

Apparently in New York state there is!

"In Albany, leaders of both houses of the Legislature called this month for a two-year moratorium on the use of Common Core test scores in teacher evaluations and in decisions about student promotions or admissions. The state teachers’ union has asked for a three-year pause. The state Board of Regents, which oversees education policy and is appointed by the Legislature, has already voted to delay by five years the date by which all high school graduates must pass Common Core-aligned Regents exams." excerpt from Common Core Curriculum Now Has Critics on the Left.

Like many things defense, roads, healthcare, perhaps this "Common Core," needs a push from the Federal government. If you read the article that I had about Nebraska and Common Core,
Nebraska passes on Common Core State Standards wrote:
Scottsbluff Public Schools Director of Curriculum Mike Mason said he would be in favor of the state adopting the Common Core.

‚ÄúWith our mobility rate in the district, it would definitely be helpful as it would provide consistency in education,‚ÄĚ he said.

As it stands now, a student moving into the Scottsbluff School District from another state could be either ahead or behind in classes. While most students in Nebraska are learning much of the same subjects at around the same time, that is not the case on a national level.


I guess Mike of N.Y., you're just going have to become Mike of Nebr.

Interstate educational standards have been around longer than the Obama administration. I suppose some backward states don't want to be seen how poorly they are doing, so may not have adopted it. As far as Nebr. is concerned, Nebraska passes on Common Core State Standards...There are good reasons why Nebraska should align its standards with Common Core.
First, let us know how Washington being involved improves things. No, I take that back. Let us know the reason Washington should be involved in my kids' education in the first place. Make it constitutional, if you can. Or, keep on promoting teaching to the test nonsense.

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.

Anytime we are talking about government run education, there is going to be a problem. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that colleges are having to run remedial programs just to get students able to take college courses. It has a proven track record of failure. Common core is more of the same.

Many parents are afraid that Common Core will point out how ignorant their children are.

"Just 31 percent of New York students in the third through eighth grades were deemed proficient in math and English on the new tests, down about 50 percent"

Politicians and bureaucrats ruining something else they have put their minds too. Political leadership is out of step with the reality which is going on in the communities. National management is what is needed however the 'managers' we keep getting in these times seem to be incompetent as well as morally corrupt. Democracy needs to be redefined and brought to be more practical in todays world.
