3 Myths That Confuse the Debate Over America’s Schools

3 Myths That Confuse the Debate Over America’s Schools | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it

Americans want students to get the best education possible. We want schools to prepare children to become good citizens and members of a prosperous American economy. The Common Core standards were carefully conceived with these two goals in mind. It would be a shame if myths and misunderstandings got in the way.

I find it interesting when people say change, in this case the common core, involved parents and teachers. Now, common core has not officially hit Canada, but educational change has and I do not ever remember being asked to participate as a teacher and parent. In fact, participation in our inspiring education move in Alberta was pretty selective. Who was invited was filtered through the bureaucrats so that few dissenting voices emerged in the process. One thing I agree is that we all want children to get the best education, but it does not mean we all agree on what that looks like. In that way, dissenting voices not only need to be acknowledged, they need to be invited to speak and be fully heard. Otherwise, change is just pretend change.
