Op-ed: Common Core: A terrible mistake

Terrible mistakes are being made by education reformers. A “one size fits all” approach to education is detrimental to children/students and robs teachers of their ability to be effective educators.

Common Core — an unproven ‘reform’ movement

I would strongly recommend that the legislators eliminate the Common Core State Standards and rescind any laws that promote “one-size-fits-all” curricula, high stakes testing, unprotected data storage and a regressive teacher evaluation process. In my opinion, the current “reform” initiative threatens all that is good in educational practice these days while only offering unfounded promises that its “reforms” will make any real difference in solving the politically untenable problem of poverty and inequitable educational opportunity in our society.
