No, teach ONLY the following curriculum: Math, Science (with a Creational perspective), History, (without the current Re-written Historical view point), English (including parts of speech, Grammar, poetry, etc.) Literature (tied to History, so the student can see how morality effects Literature), Art, Music, Drama (with the same emphasis...tied to History and how these "expressions", reflect the consesus of morality (or lack of) throughout History.

Until Common Core includes God and Jesus in every class it will not have my support.

Education should be handled at the state and local level. Student should speak English. The only national requirement I'd support is teaching American history...build national pride in being an American!

Emulate Germany. Three tiers: Trade school for future mechanics and workers. A Pre-Admin School for the non-technical workers that seem so important to the modern bureaucracy. And a technical high school for the people (like me) who actually design all the new toys that distract you all from the misery that life is without them.

@5QMG2JKConstitutionfrom Texas  answered…3mos

This reminds you of what Germany did in the 1930's. This will brainwash children to believe what the government instead of teaching them how to think for themselves

Allowing children to be individual thinkers early on would allow for higher standards in education. Ending the the ivy league choke hold on our youth or older individuals who crave knowledge keeps 99 percent of our nation from innovation!

I think the schooling is done the right way now. I think the reason the politicians want common core is so they have some one to blame for the students not dong well! [The teacher]. The problem starts at home with the parents not holding the kids accountable for not doing well in school. I know a lot of kids that went through public school and did very well, because we had parents that cared and didn't blame the teacher.IF YOU PC POLITICIANS WOULD GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR BUTTS YOU WOULD SAY THIS AND STOP CODDLING THESE KIDS AND PARENTS!

No!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Common Core is too hard it will make it difficult to get accepted into college.

@67XTTY2Socialistfrom California  answered…3mos

Currently common core standards are striving to instill critical thinking skills into student's curriculum. However, the study of the developmental nature of theses skills is not understood by many practicing teachers. Ethical reasoning is also a pocket of critical thinking that teachers education has ignored. Education should promote a populist of critical thinkers that can identify manipulative actions dressed as patriotism. Education should not be reduced to just getting a job. There are too many criminal minds, that know how to manipulate the weak thinker, the person with ego needs, and/or anyone with a button to push.

I support the core, but not the assessment culture that has been created to line the pockets of companies like Pearson. The assessment culture has warped the implementation of the core to something that can be measured by a computer. We're taking humanity out of education.

@6B4RK76Democratfrom Colorado  answered…3mos

There must be some common core standards, however education should teach to each student's potential as well. The two needs should not be mutually exclusive when balance.

@9F8DN9XRepublican from Louisiana answered…3mos

No, and the Government shouldn't have anything to do with Education.

@6DCKYDQRepublicanfrom Iowa  answered…3mos

I think educational standards are very important but must allow states and families the ability to vote on curriculum that is in line with historical moral values. A minority view should not be forced on the conservative values of families. I also think alternative educational options for families should be in place.

The educational system is to top heavy and limited. Top heavy because there are to many Superintendents and Principals, in the system and they make to much money. To limited because there is nowhere a teacher can get rid of students that do nothing but disrupt class. There should be a place these students could be sent other than normal classes and given a chance to prove they can return to normal classes if they improve there grades and behavior. Last Superintendents and Principals should be REQUIRED to carry guns in schools for school safety!

@5QLPKL5Democratfrom Alabama  answered…3mos

This is it for education issues? WTF? How about PAY OUR TEACHERS HUGE SALARIES AND POUR MONEY INTO SCHOOLS.

@5YNTQ9FConstitutionfrom Pennsylvania  answered…3mos

The teacher Union is too powerful to make any positive change in education. All they want is for taxpayers and politicians to throw money at them.

@6DDB5GRGreenfrom Colorado  answered…3mos

I am a teacher, problem is the lack of inspiring teachers. The most important thing a child learns is how to reason, how to think, not useless data. Programs like common core concentrate on data.

@5QN3864Democratfrom New York  answered…3mos

We need to look beyond the uniform. Push children to their potential and prepare them for their future in our workforce, that can't be done looking only at the basics.

@6FVQTWWLibertarianfrom New York  answered…3mos

Some standarized test are needed to compare students, but much of the content learned prior to college is nearly irrelevent. There should be broader more specialized programs in highschool, and there should not be this push for everyone to go to college. Higher education is run as a business, but the people as consumers unfortunately do not treat it as one.

@5QQMZYHRepublicanfrom Texas  answered…3mos

NO! Common Core is a waste and decreases the parents of this generation to be able to help their child with homework. The way we (30-40 something year old adults) were taught was not confusing to us as children or our parents.
Furthermore, nationally, children should NOT be taught to the least smart child in the class. They should, instead, be taught to the smartest child in the class as that will not only challenge the smartest of our youth, but will hopefully help those not as bright to push themselves to be better. If the child shows signs of truly trying and is still struggling, then decrease the level of difficulty to a point where the child grasps the subject concept, but not too easy to where they are not challenged.

@5QHFNHMDemocratfrom Idaho  answered…3mos

All students should be taught reading, writing, math and life skills by integrating them all together so it all makes sense to the students. Reading plans on how to build something, math for budgeting and saving, writing for job applications and resumes, etc. Students should also be taught how to take care of themselves by learning the basics of cooking, gardening, whole foods vs. processed foods, sewing etc. They should also learn about physical activity and how it is important to a healthy life, music classes, art and sports. Every child is entitled to a well rounded education so they can be the best person they can be in the real world.

@67XVQLQDemocratfrom Vermont  answered…3mos

The education system requires a complete reform. The current standards do nothing but promote the mishandling of schools and false education of our youth. Education should be rebuilt around developing skills in our youth and school hours lessened in order to allow the young to properly learn outside a classroom environment and adapt to realistic situations. The goals of our school boards should aim to provide youth with skills in trade, not only the skill to get accepted into colleges, a process that has come to stagnate the job market and waste precious time developing the lives of young adults.

In Europe at the 7th grade children are tested and explained to them what they are qualified to do in life and sent to a training program to learn a career they are capable of doing.

Like the ACT and SAT, there needs to be a "test"per grade level/age group that are the SAME for every state to take. All the state tests are NOT the same so, it is hard to compare data. The government should create national standards that align with the different tests.

@6DDSGV8Greenfrom California  answered…3mos

Yes, but only until high school, where students should then be allowed to choose what route they want to start studying to prepare for college.

@9H3YTTGGreen from Minnesota answered…3mos

Somewhat yes, but our entire education system needs to be updated and changed completely first; then we can talk about how to implement these standards.

@9GXYLL8Democrat from Maryland answered…3mos

Yes and no, Ideally, states should be in control of the educational standards, but at the same time, people who go out of state for school so it's better for there to federal standards so all students are on the same page

No, every student learns differently, and not every teacher instructs the same. Not every single kid in the country will learn the same things at the same time, and some may take longer to learn a topic, while others don't.

In general, I don't support Common Core national standards as they are implemented today. However, I think there is a place for national standards. Standardized testing is not the way to go about implementing those standards though.

@9R2YH8NSocialist from Massachusetts answered…3wks

The education system requires a complete reform. The current common core standards do nothing but promote mishandling and false education. Schools were made to create educated citizens, and the structure itself is based on factory workers. We need to focus less on specifics that only apply to certain trades and more on critical thinking. It should be rebuilt around developing actual important skills in our youth. School hours should be lessened or have a large break period in order to allow students to properly learn outside a classroom environment and adapt to realistic situations. Students also need legitimate resources in highschool to prepare them for financial independence.

The standards in maths and the sciences should be made dramatically more practical and complex, while reading standards should be relaxed.
