    The source material in your blog post cited talks about a survey that questions the effectiveness of the implementation of the standards, not the standards themselves. The author of the blog post extrapolates that to mean the standards are flawed. That is not a good reading of what the source material says. Do you disagree?

      There is plenty of evidence that Common Core is not a valid teaching technique.

      There is no evidence that it is...  

      Can you find independent analysis stating that Common Core is actually a good thing to teach?

      Please, we don't need google searches showing us endorsements by those marketers tied to Common Core.  We need independent analysis.

      I've been looking for a year and a half.  I don't think it is there....

      All independents say ditch it.

        I've linked a bunch in this thread, and similar threads, in the past. Google will find them, but the difference is you actually have to read them - as well as have an idea what's in common core - before you can form a real opinion about them. So no, I'm not going to dig up more links when you're not going to read what I posted anyway. This conversation is got other people - you seem to have your mind made up before you began.

      NO educator had a hand in writing them. NONE.  

      And when they were sent to educators for "review", to a one, they all REJECTED them. But Pearson and Gates ignored them.

        educators? All of these teachers and educators rejected the standards?

        I'm asking this as a sincere question. If the work that these people did was rejected and replaced with inappropriate standards, I really want to know how that happened, and I trust you to give me the information that explains what occurred.
    •  Yes it is a piss poor standard precisely (3+ / 0-)

      because it allows such deeply flawed implementations to still meet the standard.
