We are a community of parents sharing information, resources, and support for our children’s education. On our site kids can get an educational check up in character strengths, reading and math and get customized follow up suggestions for improvement. We aim to raise the bar to help all children succeed.
WE NEVER have been convinced that opposition to the Common Core teaching standards was anything more than the result of a campaign by professional agitators to drum up anger toward anything that can be even remotely tied to the president. Still, we sympathized with the decision by more responsible legislators to authorize a tweaking of the standards, in hopes of allowing our state to focus on real problems with our schools. Think of it as giving candy to a hysterical 3-year-old in order to calm a temper tantrum.
