Teacher support for Common Core standards drops drastically (The Daily Signal)
Apparently the more one finds out about and uses Common Core, the more they hate it.
I think the big take-away here is “UNTESTED STANDARDS.”
They simply imposed them from above… from Washington.. by politicians… and didn’t bother to either
a) ask for Teachers, Parents of Students input
b) DIDN’T TEST IT!
Now they’re surprised the new rules are all screwed up and don’t work? They’re SURPRISED that imposing political standards from Washington makes it political and centralized?
Are they often surprised in the morning when they turn on the water faucet and water comes out?
If you turn on the COLD water and COLD water comes out, it’s not the plumber’s fault. It’s not the way the pipes are set up that’s the problem. You simply get what you asked for.
I can see now why they pushed so hard for the Lottery to be connected to the Dept of Education.
