MAY 5, 2014 COMMON CORE FORUM QUESTIONS

 

 

 

Fifty parents, grandparents, public school employees, public servants, and others attended the May 5 Common Core Forum.  Many asked challenging questions.  We don’t have answers to all their questions.  We’ll research and get back with you.  Please stay tuned.  The answers will appear as a post on our Blog.

 

QUESTION 1:  Why do parents “fear” Common Core?

ANSWER 1:  Many reasons were raised:

  •      Federalization of education for a “one size fits all”

  •      Expensive unfunded mandate

  •      Fast pace of implementation

  •      Collection of intrusive data on students & families

  •      Math content delays

  •      Who’s “behind” Common Core funding?

  •      Curriculum changes to incorporate “progressive” agenda

  •      Lack of parental input

  •      Too many UNKNOWNS
