"Learning to read well and do complicated math should be a shared expectation, not a dicey political dispute."

"Learning to read well and do complicated math should be a shared expectation, not a dicey political dispute. The Common Core standards for what students should know at each grade level — not just the facts, but how to think critically — will help prepare our nation for fierce global competition.

Wisconsin is already spending $23 million to implement new tests tied to the Common Core standards. Walker previously agreed to spend millions so the tests could begin next spring. Educators have spent tens of thousands of hours preparing for the more rigorous benchmarks, adjusting curriculums and teaching methods."

Rebecca Jackson's insight:

If we want to prepare our children for financial and academic success, then it must start in our own homes.  The goal is to have kids  acquire a series of habits they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.  If communities fail to work with educators and emotionally prepare children for hard work as we continue to raise the academic benchmarks—we will fail.  The new homework is building grit.  Grit = grades.  #Thelearninghabit
