A bad week for Common Core

Two new national polls, released Wednesday and Tuesday, found the public souring on the academic standards, which are meant to elevate math, reading and writing instruction across the nation. One of the polls, conducted by the journal Education Next, also found a steep plunge in support for the standards among public school teachers.

“There’s no denying that this is bad news for supporters of the Common Core,” said Michael Petrilli, president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute and a proponent of the standards.

Common Core backers did get a bit of good news from Louisiana late Tuesday, when a district judge slapped down Gov. Bobby Jindal’s effort to repeal the standards by executive order. But in Ohio, the Legislature took up a bill to join the five other states that have repealed the standards in recent months. ...

Whatever, Jim. I suppose there is something in these irrelevant links that has something to do with the goodness of Common Core, but only you have the deep insight to know what it is. btw what does it matter what you're thoroughly against, if what you're for is govt and corporate backed corruption?

Jeb, was thinking right about Common Core, both he and Jindel are mixed up on religion--both being Catholic.

Thanks for the link, Jim. Good for Bobby Jindal. At least one politician has seen the dawn.

PS I did view the video, the one where Jindal is for Common Core. Sure glad he woke up from the stupor. Maybe the rest will take a bit longer. Jeb Bush and Jim in the same pod? Who would ever have thought Jim would support a Bush?

Mike of NY, apparently you didn't see the video again did you? Automatons, come out of parochial schools and perhaps even some homeschools that slavishly follow the same lesson plan. As I pointed out, these videos are short. You should enjoy the first one, it has Mike Huckabee, and the present governor of Louisiana praising Common Core. Now, that was almost amusing. So, again, take a look at, http://www.businessforcore.org/videos/ (U.S. Chamber of Commerce YouTube Videos Supporting Common Core). there is a comment there by one of the experts who points out one isn't tied to a rigid teaching method. John Birch Society? I really do believe this gal has the correct idea, http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/05/07/the-wingnut-war-on-common-core-is-a-plot-to-destroy-public-schools.html (The Wingnut War On Common Core Is A Plot To Destroy Public Schools). I would say it's really more of a plot to make sure parochial schools get vouchers.

Another thought on the govt schools vs. homeschooling issue: one spouse will have to stay home to do the homeschooling, so their income will not be counted in their Social Security 35-yr long work history that their benefits will be calculated on.
The family may be able to live on one income, but have they thought of this Social Security reduction?
A solution could be to have the kids get to work ASAP, and then the parents can open IRA accounts for them so that much of their income is tax-free.
Another solution is to have the kids in govt schools or homeschools take Advanced Placement tests to gain credit for college before they graduate from high school.

You're the only one keeps bringing up the John Birch Society in this thread, Jim. Need an imaginary enemy? Common Core needs a lot more than that, so keep trying.

fyi, the purpose of education here is not to contribute to the economic system of the US. That comes as a result of educating the students to the the best of their individual ability and capability, not to make them have the same "standard" outcome with every other child. You want automatons? Move to North Korea.

Jim, I have to wonder why as a Christian, you are so wild about a godless, humanistic education like common core? Thats why we homeschool. Whether common core or no, its just gonna be politically correct, humanistic garbage.

the first video that comes up I think really covers the needs of common core. You are going to have a uniformed educational program because businesses will demand it. So, if your children want to have, they had better see what businesses want which will be based on common core
Education isn't primarily about training for the workforce, but the mindset that thinks it is explains why the Chamber is for it. They, like government, love the idea of mindless automatons fitted into the machinery, unable to do much else because they have been so fitted. Corporate greed is one reason behind the push for common core, which should be obvious.

That's right, what do teachers know about education? It's politicians what knows edyoucashin, right?

btw, some states that feel they may lose out have decided to keep Common Core standards, but change the name to protect the guilty and disassociate from so "popular" an idea.

Arizona: "Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards"

Florida: "Next Generation Sunshine State Standards"

Iowa: "The Iowa Core"

Pitiful isn't it, what lust for money can lead to?

From the news:
"The Education Next poll also asked people who said they’d heard of the Common Core a series of true/false questions about the standards. Huge majorities got them wrong, mistakenly insisting, for instance, that the federal government mandates the use of the standards and that the Common Core strips away local control over textbooks."

Not quite true. All but the most naïve know that federal mandates aren't needed when federal funding is somehow tied to the objective.
