    I'm not sure exactly what ANSI wants, although I got the gist of it. Here's the thing. I teach. The standards in my content area are actually excellent. They're well thought out, achievable, and obviously modeled directly on the standards produced by our two largest professional associations. It's only a draft we can look at now - our content area will roll out by the end of the year - but there was a public comment phase before the next draft.

    So while I can appreciate your perspective, what affects my life more than what some standards body (no matter how illustrious) says about common core is whether I can see them work - and I can. Good thing too because we're two years down the road for implementation.
