Response to Sancho (Original post)

Mon Oct 14, 2013, 09:35 AM

1. Had an interesting conversation with my kid's teacher about CCSS and

this very topic. She said that Common Core, while "internationally-based", pushes our kids to be as educated as the rest of the developed world and held to the same standards...but the rest of the developed world has paid parental leave, paid health care, shorter work weeks, lower rates of homelessness and hunger...all things our kids face every day, unless the family is really well-off. Then we take kids starting at a deficit and thrust them headlong into this "standard" and expect them to do well. And expect the teachers to overcome all the societal shortfalls or be fired.
