Great summation of Common Core. It really isn’t meant to help kids excel, it is another attempt to ensure equal outcomes. Your kids will be homogenized. High achievement will not be allowed because it has been deemed unfair to those not capable of similar achievement. By the same token, low achievement will be similarly disbarred because it drags down the curve. There are already cases where special needs education is being farmed out to special facilities separate from normal public education. Equal outcomes has always been the goal. Nothing else will be tolerated.
