Teacher: I Am Not an Outlier!

Teacher: I Am Not an Outlier! | Social Justice | Scoop.it

When a handful of state legislators in the Kentucky General Assembly introduced House BIll 215 to repeal the KY Core Academic Standards (KCAS), I did not consider it anything other than an attack on the work that my 94 students over the past three years have invested in my classroom and their own learning. Ask any of my students: there have been tears; blood, sweat and intellectual tears. They have worked their tails off. I have a deep respect for them because of their diligence and willingness to persevere. I never worked that hard in school.

 

I can no longer stay silent on matters that affect my fellow teachers and the hundreds of thousands of students that each KY teachers represent. I can no longer sit quietly idling while others, who do not truly understand the implications of HB215, make decisions that could potentially erase all of our progress. I am not an outlier. I am one of nearly 43,000 teachers in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and it is time for each of us to exercise our voice.

Excellent article from a teacher's perspective who's worked with Common Core for the past three years.  

 

Teachers doing the work; others making the decisions. Hummm....

Kentucky a national leader in instituting Common Core math and reading lessons in classroom

Kentucky a national leader in instituting Common Core math and reading lessons in classroom | Social Justice | Scoop.it

Two years after becoming the first state in the nation to implement the more rigorous academic standards, education officials in Kentucky say teachers have embraced the changes and are encouraging their peers in other states who have been hesitant to implement Common Core.

 

“Our teachers have been strong leaders,” Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday said. “They have worked collaboratively to share resources, assessment items and lesson plans.”

 

The goal is simple: ensuring that students are prepared for college and the workforce — areas where Kentucky has come up short in past years, according to the state’s college and business leaders.
