Well, Nancy Stone of Holly Springs mad a splash with the Common Core opposition parents and her “investigation” of Common Core. Or rather lack of investigation. The op-ed having the word ‘investigate’ anywhere in the title is laughable; no ‘investigating’ was done. Instead, this is a not to subtle regurgitation of all the same pro-Core talking points we’ve seen for two years now. It’s about what I’d expect from NC Policy Watch. Prime example:
“..the standards are just very long lists of what students should know and be able to do from Kindergarten through High School.”
Yawn. Taking the literal road are we? Well done ma’am. Yes, standards are just a list.
A fundamentally flawed, experimental list which is age and developmentally inappropriate in the primary grades and dumbs our kids down in the secondary ones. Just a list that dictate testing, materials, curriculum etc. Just a list.
