You really don't know how Common Core was created and who created it do you?

The Fed Govt gave incentives to those who adopted it, but they sure didn't create it

NOVEMBER 5, 2018

It’s been about nine years since the Obama administration lured states into adopting Common Core sight unseen, with promises it would improve student achievement. Like President Obama’s other big promises — “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” — this one’s been proven a scam.
“If you set and enforce rigorous and challenging standards and assessments; if you put outstanding teachers at the front of the classroom; if you turn around failing schools — your state can win a Race to the Top grant that will not only help students outcompete workers around the world, but let them fulfill their God-given potential,” President Obama said in July 2009.

Seems he had something to do with it to me.

It all started with former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, who was the 2006-07 chair of the National Governors Association and now leads the University of California system, says Dane Linn, a vice president of the Business Roundtable who oversees its Education and Workforce Committee.

THIS JANET NAPOLITANO

Janet Napolitano: 'I regret deeply that I did not show better judgment'

UC Regents chair George Kieffer issued this admonishment of the system's president, Janet Napolitano:

The President is responsible for setting an appropriate tone from the top and fostering a culture of transparency and accountability on behalf of the University, which operates as a public trust for the State and people of California. She is also responsible for the conduct of her staff, particularly her direct reports, including her Chief of Staff and Deputy Chief of Staff.

It was developed in 2009 by the Gov and State Education Commissioners from 48 states, 2 US territories, and the District of Columbia through the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers

The state-led effort to develop the Common Core State Standards was launched in 2009 by state leaders, including governors and state commissioners of education from 48 states, two territories and the District of Columbia, through their membership in the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). State school chiefs and governors recognized the value of consistent, real-world learning goals and launched this effort to ensure all students, regardless of where they live, are graduating high school prepared for college, career, and life.

It was first discussed as a project in Nov 2007 during the Council of Chief State School Officers annual Policy Forum in Columbus OH and an advisory group of Governors, State Education Leaders and Education Researchers were assembled and tasked to research and develop a report on common standards

In Dec 2008 the National Gov Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers advisory group released their report and research with a recommendation that states needed to update their standards by adopting a common core of internationally bench marked standards in math and language arts for all students K-12

In April 2009 the NGA and the CCSSO brought in all of their education policy advisors from these states and all State Education Leaders in Chicago and they were tasked with creating the Common Core State Standards Initiative

In May 2009 these advisors developed the first draft of Common Core for review

In June 2009 the CCSSO and NGA announced they had commitment from Governors and Chief Education leaders in 49 states that would participate in the state led process to develop Common core

In Summer 2009 the State Education Leaders and Governors brought in teachers and created work groups in each state to develop and review all K-12 standards

In Sept 2009 the NGA and CCSSO released their draft of Common Core standards to the public. They received over 1000 positive responses to Common Core from educators and the public

In Oct 2009 the States took their draft to a validation committee made up of independent education experts to provide additional comments and to validate the Common Core Standards

Common Core Standards then went through several drafts and revisions from Dec 2009 until June 2010

In June 2010 the NGA and CCSSO released their final Common Core State Standards and reports summarizing the work on the validation committee which had input on it 3 different times

In 2010 the Obama Admin started the $4.3 Billion Race to the Top program which provided competitive grants to schools who pledge reforms in 4 areas. There was a scoring system for the grants based on a 500 pt total. A state who adopted Common Core was awarded a max of 40pts for doing so. States could have still received the grant money without adopting Common Core at all.

In 2011 forward States were given the option of adopting the Common core State Standards for their own states and replace their existing standards. 45 states and the District of Columbia decided to adopt Common Core.

No person employed by the Federal Govt was ever on any development of the standards that make up Common Core. To this day States are free to have Common Core Standards or not

oh please... define "free" for me. my lord.

The Federal government implemented common core as a means to get election money kickbacks by granting "testing services" for their buddies.

The whole thing as implemented by the Federal government is a scam that is designed to take money from the local school districts (test fees), and funnel it to their buddies who then donate to their elections.

The tests are/were designed so that 60% fail, and they rake in even more money by forcing kids to retake the tests.

It always puzzled me how people thought that making educational standards more difficult would improve test scores. If kids weren't understanding it before, then making it harder isn't going to help. The goal was to have kids prepared for college, so Common Core (or something like it) was necessary. However, they're not going to magically get kids to learn the material. The teaching methods have to change first for kids to understand them better. We have to move away from lecture format in classrooms and have learning more interactive and collaborative, as studies have shown them to be more effective. Also, attracting and keeping better teachers probably helps.

The Oklahoma Legislature repealed common core standards in the state in June 2014 and the state no longer has it....that is called Freedom.

Sorry if your backward ass state can't get it right. Blame your legislators
sorry Charlie...... free does not work that way..... there is free and then there is "free"

Oklahoma, it appears, will have to pay for repealing Common Core standards.

The U.S. Department of Education on Thursday denied a request by the state’s top education official to extend a flexibility waiver under the No Child Left Behind Act, a decision that will place restrictions on nearly $30 million in annual federal funding for local school districts beginning with the 2015-2016 school year.

The move follows the state’s repeal of Common Core education standards earlier this year. It will require a total of about $29 million in federal funding — or 20 percent of $145.5 million — be set aside to pay for tutoring and transportation by schools now considered to be in need of improvement.

Along with a good old fashioned arm twist.

Common core increases the 'teaching to the test' mentality that discourages creative and effective teachers. It also increases the number of kids placed on IEP's/ILP's as most kids on them are exempt from testing standard. Thus kids that are bright but may not be good test takers are exempted to avoid bringing down a school districts scores and reducing their federal monies. It's a lose/ lose situation for the children all around.

What you’re sugesting is that it’s really not about the kids?
