Thomas W. Gunlock: No one is representing the children | College and Career-Ready Standards for School Leaders | Scoop.it

Thomas W. Gunlock is a member of the Ohio State Board of Education


"Working in the world of state-level education policy, frustration and disappointment are part of the job. I admit to giving in to frustration and even a little anger over the past year at the all-too-frequent hypocrisy."


"Everyone always says, “It’s about the kids,” but in reality, policy too often has little to do with children or their well-being. The focus always seems to come down to adults and institutions doing what they do best — protecting their status quo."

UDL and Common Core Standards FAQs | National Center On Universal Design for Learning

UDL and Common Core Standards FAQs | National Center On Universal Design for Learning | College and Career-Ready Standards for School Leaders | Scoop.it

Is UDL included in the common core?

  • UDL is included in the section of the Common Core Standards called “application to students with disabilities”. In this section the authors referred to the definition laid out in the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (PL 110-135).The reference to UDL in this section may give the impression that UDL is just for students with disabilities. However, UDL not only applies to students with disabilities, it applies to all other learners as well. All students can benefit from the types of instruction used to reach learners “on the margins,” as the learning needs of all individuals vary a great deal. As such, UDL should be used within inclusive general education classrooms.
  • Although this is the only specific mention of UDL, there are many concepts embedded throughout the Common Core Standards that are aligned with the UDL framework.

  • The standards offer parents "a clear understanding of what my children are expected to learn and each grade level."
  • The Standards provide incredible value to parents wanting to be fully engaged in their children's education.
  • Regardless of their zip code, parents are assured that their children graduate fully prepared for college and careers.


Government Takeover Myth Debunked


"This isn't even a Pinocchio stretch of the truth, but an out and out lie."
 

  • Truth #1 - States are driving this process and have been involved at every level — from the drafting and development stages through revisions and the final product.
  • Truth #2 - States voluntarily adopted the Standards.
  • Truth #3 - States and school districts still have autonomy in decisions made on how to teach the Standards in the classroom.
