No one seems to have the answer, but from teachers I know this could be a good start. But more support needs to be given to teachers and less emphasis on grading the teachers and putting them under so much stress. Teachers are underpaid now and more are... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Vero Beach, FL
I do not support any federal involvement in education. It is a way to indoctrinate the youth which is what has been happening. Plus common core IS NOT TEACHING THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR HISTORY and has screwed up the teaching if math so bad I wonder what the... 6 years ago from a Republican in Garrisonville, VA
Yes, I support the idea of a national standard for measuring base growth. However, states and local communities should have greater flexibility to modify and create curriculums that address the unique needs of their populations, without the looming threat... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Washington, DC
National standards yes. Implementation and accountability yes. Problem is that in some cases, "National Standards" are dumbing down some curriculums. Parents need to be educated with children whether they are "too busy" or not. The... 6 years ago from a Republican in East Greenwich, RI
To be blunt, the current standardised-testing addiction our system has is bullshit, and should be entirely reformed, because education should be learning, not practicing the crap they aren't going over, and likely never will. 6 years ago from a Green in Chester Springs, PA
The purpose of forma education is to render the student self-educable. No system that teaches so-called creation science, or that does not include critical thinking and analytical skills, is acceptable. 6 years ago from a Green in New York, NY
I support the wild concept of actually teaching something... anything to our youth. The public education system is a complete joke. We are graduating kids that can't spell difficult words, such as "bone" or "meat"... kids who do... 6 years ago from a Republican in Paradise Valley, AZ
Yes, I support a national base standard but allow states and local districts to customize their implementation. The department of Education (federal) should be noting more than audit agency that determines if certain states are meeting a certain standard. 6 years ago from a Republican in M C B H Kaneohe Bay, HI
Common Core standards are created by politicians and lawmakers who have never taught a day in their life. As a teacher, I find this sick and ignorant. The common core is decent, but it needs to be finalized by actual educators. 6 years ago from a Republican in Manhattan, KS
As much as possible education should be locally CONTROLLED but the local school boards should be given the financial resources to be as flexible as possible for each individual students needs. Even state CONTROLL in a state as diverse as Florida leads to... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Tallevast, FL
I'm no expert on education, I've spent no time studying the issue, so I feel like I should trust in someone else. Though as with everyone these days it seems, the truthfulness of individuals is questioned. 6 years ago from a Green in Houston, TX
No, our schools are pathetic and federal intervention won't help. We need families to take responsibility for educating the children. There is plenty of assistance available to those willing to work to improve their situation. "No child left... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Houston, TX
Not completely. I want to see it reformed. Placing so much priority on 2 areas deemphasizes other important areas and modes of learning. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Lynbrook, NY
Uniform testing results in cookie-cutter student, not individuals. The testing encourages children to go for high paying jobs and deem lower wage jobs unacceptable. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Doylestown, PA
Implement a new Initiative where test's are given to students every year from 6th grade to 12th grade that determines what type of career(s) they might be best suited in. Then offer classes that can guide the students to be prepared for life after... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Washington, DC
Yes, but teaching children to LEARN, not just pass tests is the point of education. We need to rethink how this is being implemented (rushed) and study best practices of other countries to find new solutions. 6 years ago from a Green in Ivy, VA
I support a common core nationally but it MUST be based upon a thorough teaching of history and the classics. 6 years ago from a Republican in Laguna Niguel, CA
Common core is a good "core" a good starting point - but each child is different and should be encouraged to learn at their own speed to attain their potential. Many a talented student is held back to accommodate the lowest common denominator... 6 years ago from a Republican in Avon, CT
No as they are terribly substandard compared to other better educated countries. 6 years ago from a Republican in Canton, MA
Yes, but severely revise the learning plan to provide for a more well rounded and more practical education. 6 years ago from a Republican in Franklin, TN
No, Teachers should be enabled to educate to a student's potential, instead of to a guideline's. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Hoboken, NJ
Generally speaking the more the federal government tries to do the less they accomplish, stop trying to micromanage the entire country, and let local issues be handled locally. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Boca Raton, FL
No, because it will narrow the focus to teaching to have students pass an assessment which is not the purpose of education. 6 years ago from a Democrat in West Milford, NJ
