Common Core Craziness

Common Core just keeps getting weirder. Today, we have two juxtaposed pieces of information. One that shows students being indoctrinated into praising Common Core, the other showing how clearly Common Core fails to educate children.

Parent Led Reform is a non-profit organization that projects parental power into education reform. Founded by parents and led by parents, Parent Led Reform is not a think tank, it is an action tank.

Testimony by Stacie Clarke, Florida

BY Stacie Clarke

I was living blissfully in ignorance of Common Core until March 16, 2013. I saw a post on a homeschooling website and someone mentioned Common Core State Standards. Fervently I began to do research on the pros and cons of Common Core. It quickly became apparent that I needed to do something to stop it.

Common Core Battle Flares in Michigan

Today, the fight on Common Core heated up with the first hearing on the topic in Michigan. On one hand is the more liberal wing of the legislature which feels that the Common Core standards would set a high bar for academic achievement across the country.

"Residents urge state to drop Common Core school standards"

Good article regarding residents in Pennsylvania who are opposing Common Core. Hopefully the new bills that are being introduced in the PA Legislature will pass. http://articles.mcall.com/2013-07-10/news/mc-pa-common-core-0710-20130710_1_common-core-student-records-standards

"Common Core tests could exceed Georgia's budget"

Looks like the Common Core standards are costing Georgia more money. Another reason to dump these standards.http://onlineathens.com/local-news/2013-07-09/common-core-tests-could-exceed-georgias-budget
