Common Core will raise the bar of standards, but scores will go down at first | Interests in Common Core | Scoop.it

Scores will go down and the edu-politicians are trying hard to prepare the public. But their campaign of self-inoculation against widespread disappointment should not protect them. These educrats got us into this.

Instead of identifying each individual standard, I would consider broader categories would accompanying teacher annotations that help provide more specific, standards-focused information related to larger strands.
