Teachers complain Common Core-linked lessons little more than scripts to read

Some of the biggest critics of new lesson plans aligned with the national Common Core standards are the people charged with teaching them.

A growing number of teachers say the national standards, adopted by some 45 states, have combined with pressure to "teach to the test" to take all individuality out of their craft. Some teachers told FoxNews.com the new education approach is turning their lessons into little more than data-dispensing sessions, and they fear their jobs are being marginalized.

“Now teachers aren’t as unique,” said Michael Warren, a public school history teacher in New Jersey. “It means anyone can do it. It’s like taking something done by humans and having it done by a machine.” ...

UPS, did you read the pros- and cons- URL .

I did, thanks for asking. The thing is the cons were mainly like this.

Get our new fangled vacuum cleaner.

Pros

1. Cleans faster
2. Picks up more dirt.
3. Uses less electricity.

Cons

1. You will take longer to clean if you don't buy it.
2. Your floor will be dirtier after using your current vacuum than it would be if you used ours.
3. Your electric bill will be higher if you continue with your current vacuum cleaner.

So, for the most part the cons (maybe except for 3 and 5) were just pro common core stuff, they were really saying common core standards cause children to learn quicker, increase their thinking skills, etc.

The reality is the measuring of the standard of learning is much more subjective. i.e. it is not as important that they have the right answer as discovering the process they use to come up with that answer. The few education people they used didn't sign off of the final product. Common core makes no child behind look good. (btw, that was given by president Bush to Edward Kennedy to draft, so still a democratic idea)

The Daily Kos piece was laughable at best.

Penny, you can teach children good grammar, from the Bible, if you use a version like New King James Version and probably the ESV. No, too much has changed to go back to the 19th century and especially anything earlier than that.

UPS, did you read the pros- and cons- URL that I put up. It wasn't not all pros even if I did take a quotation from that section of the article.

Yes, if you have a child who is a genius, you do send him to a private school or home school him. I gave you an example of a well-schooled man, though not in wisdom, The education of John Stuart Mill Many states, especially the Red ones, will have their standards raised by Common Core.

I will say once again, no matter Common Core or just a regular public school, you keep an eye on what is being taught your children!

UPS, I don't like the broads strokes of Tea & Libertarian Parties ARE The John Birch Society. Too much political extremes on both right --and left.

Jim, you can pick up an old grammar book from a hundred years ago and an old basal from 200 years ago and teach them language fluency with a piece of paper and a pencil. and history cannot be taught except within a world view and a moral reference, which is currently that western Christian society must be decimated and homosexuality to replace it...

quality books are available to the public without price.... the greatest of all being the bible itself, which has been used by many for literacy.

all this jazz is for the indoctrination of a generation. it is necessary for the direction we are going, you know that right?

I wonder if many of those that complain aren't really competent to teach the subject, that they are suppose to? Anyway---

I see there are some sermons in the sermons list that may address this issue?

Derrick Meador wrote:
The Common Core Standards will increase the rigor in the classroom and thus better prepare students for college and global work success. This is probably the single biggest reason that the Common Core Standards were created. Higher education has long complained that more and more students need remediation at the beginning of college. The increased rigor should lead students to be more prepared for life after high school.
