Myth of the Month: Common Core Is Dumbing Down Education for the College-Bound

Myth of the Month: Common Core Is Dumbing Down Education for the College-Bound | Common Core Insider | Scoop.it

The myth du jour asserts that Common Core will fail to prepare students for college and instead will actually dumb down education. Yes, you read that right; detractors have gone so far as to forecast "dumber" students as a result of these higher standards for achievement.

 

This specious argument against CCSS falls apart quickly. Careful analysis of the standards verifies that they align with those in the highest-performing countries on international comparisons, and they have received the highest possible rating for content and rigor from the conservative Fordham Institute, a tireless advocate for higher standards.
