Common Core Standards or Just a Common Con Job?
Common Core standards. Another "gift" from the federal government. As an educator anytime someone out of the classroom comes up with an idea, I get nervous. The further they are away from the actual classroom with real live students the more dangerous the directive. Common Core Standards fits right in with all the other "great ideas" from those who don't know or should know better. Rachel Alexander has written a great peace entitled
"Common Core: What's Hidden Behind the Language".
Rachel lays it out pretty well. The more I read about it the worse it sounds. So, give it a read and let me know your opinion.
