NEW YORK — The Common Core has been applauded by education leaders and promoted by the Obama administration as a way to replace a hodgepodge of state standards with one set of rigorous learning goals. Though 45 states and the District of Columbia have signed onto them since 2010, resistance came quickly, mostly from right-leaning states, where some leaders and political action groups have protested what they see as a federal takeover of local classrooms. But the newest chorus of complaints is coming from one of the most liberal states, and one of the earliest champions of the standards: New York. And that is causing supporters of the Common Core to shudder. Carol Burris, an acclaimed high school principal on Long Island, calls the Common Core a “disaster.” “We see kids,” she said, “they don’t want to go to school anymore.” Leaders of both parties in the New York Legislature want to rethink how the state uses the Common Core. The statewide teachers’ union withdrew its support for the standards last month until “major course corrections” took place.
The Common Core has been presented as a paradigmatic shift beyond the test-and-punish policies of NCLB. However, we are seeing the mechanisms for testing, ranking, rewarding and punishing simply refined, and made even more consequential for students, teachers and schools.
