Common Core State Standards: “Academic Child Abuse” or Common Sense?

Common Core State Standards: “Academic Child Abuse” or Common Sense? | Qoogu Recipes | Scoop.it

How can so called education “experts” be so far apart on the issue of common core state standards (CCSS) and whether they are the right approach for our children? One such expert (and former colleague of mine at the U.S. Department of Education), Bill Evers, was quoted last week at a hearing before the Missouri legislature calling CCSS “academic child abuse”, arguing the standards will “ruin the life chances, the business prospects, and the employment prospects of Missouri’s children in the worldwide economy.”

 

However, just one month ago, an open letter from 73 leaders of major corporations and organizations representing employers appeared in the New York Times in support of CCSS stating, “We support these new, tougher academic standards that are currently being rolled out in classrooms across the country. These standards will better prepare students for college and the workplace, something of critical importance to the nation’s employers. The changes now under way in America’s schools hold great promise for creating a more highly skilled workforce that is better equipped to meet the needs of local, state and national economies.”

True that CCSS will better prepare students to begin college level work without remediation courses, but better yet that beyond college, graduates will be better prepared for the workforce.
