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. 5 years ago from a Republican in Manhattan, KS
Train and hire outstanding educators and let them teach. There is a need for federal standards in obedience with the Constitution but too much is too much. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Auburn, AL
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. 5 years ago from a Green in Ivy, VA
No, Teachers should be enabled to educate to a student's potential, instead of to a guideline's. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Hoboken, NJ
