Teachers support new Common Core learning standards, survey says



A poll of more than 20,000 teachers, out today from the children's publisher Scholastic Inc., finds that about three-fourths of teachers think the standards known as Common Core will improve students' abilities to reason and think critically. Only 8% say Common Core will have a negative impact on the classroom as schools retool to comply with the new standards.

Again, privacy will be the main issue:

 

"The point here is not just to say, “Wow! Look how much research is happening.” Nor is it to warn of an impending AI takeover of humanity. It’s just a heads-up that there’s a lot going on underneath the surface that goes largely underreported by the press, but of which certain types of people should try to keep abreast nonetheless.

Lawmakers, national security agents, ethicists and economists (Howard touches on the economy in that TEDx talk and elaborates in a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything session) need to be aware of what’s happening and what’s possible if our foundational institutions are going to be prepared for the effects of machine intelligence, however it’s defined. (In another field of AI research, Paul Allen is pumping money into projects that are trying to give computers actual knowledge.)"
