Put The Brakes on Common Core by Terry Martin

The experts who support it describe Common Core (CC) as “A tighter set of smarter standards focused on developing critical learning skills instead of mastering fragmented bits of knowledge.” “It equalizes the playing field by raising expectations for all children, especially those suffering the worst effects of the “drill and kill” test prep norms of the recent past.”
