5. The common core standards themselves?

They are a list of standards, not bad nor good in themselves, like any other list of standards. Personally, I prefer the old "frameworks," which gave content and skills in a scope and sequence with a narrative to keep them in context, but that's just me. I haven't been excited about very long lists of isolated skills that we call "standards."

It's not the standards themselves, though, but the abuse and misuse of those standards, and that's what we've been dealing with since the "standards and accountability movement" came to power.

The CCSS is no exception. The abuse and misuse is already in full swing.
