Absolutely not! It's complete and utter drek! Now our children suffer through, fail, and the government blames the teachers. I call BULLSHIT AMERICA. Stop making our children suffer because you have penis envy of other countries. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Queensbury, NY
A national standard would be great however, they need to implement a robust safety net that supplies vocational and technical opportunities for our children. 6 years ago from a Green in Saint Albans, NY
No, Americans already stand lower on educational tiers than other countries. Increased government control will eventually lead to students only learning what the government wants them to know and whatever skewed versions they came up with. 1984???... 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Granville, NY
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
Where in the Constitution is Education mentioned ?? Get rid of Dep't of Education-- let States run-- with input from Counties, et al -- localize as much as possible. 6 years ago from a Republican in Rome, NY
Yes, I support a national base standard but allow states and local districts to customize their implementation. States can elect to be excluded but only if they choose not receive any Federal funding for education. 6 years ago from a Democrat in New York, NY
I hate the the common core standards, its taking away from children's education. They are getting too much pressure thrown on them at too young of an age and they are not learning everything they need to. Common core is horrible. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Valley Stream, NY

Great concept, terrible implementation. The current Common Core will not accurately ensure students are ready for college, and will actively damage student learning in some areas. The Common Core is not ready for implementation, and efforts should be... 6 years ago from a Green in Ithaca, NY
Yes, but do not interfere with states whose educational standards exceed the Common Core standards unless it is shown that such standards have not helped achieve academic success in the state. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Fort Erie, NY
Judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, and it will always think it's dumb. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Brockport, NY
I support the IDEA but so far execution has been awful. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Astoria, NY
The common core standards are fine, but the testing mechanism and requirements are ridiculous. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Rochester, NY
While I think that students should be taught to understand a subject, not just to be able to regurgitate it on a test, I think that some form of standardized testing should exist to benchmark certain performance standards at each grade level. For example,... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Rochester, NY
The standards aren't even close to what they should be. No wonder we're falling further behind in educating our young people. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Glens Falls, NY
