Get your church family and friends involved. 1,536 New York State Principals have banded together pointing to the destructiveness to children's education and health that are the effects they experience under Common Core. Points To Study:
- Alabama State Board of Education Superintendent Tommy Bice, who is leading the charge to keep Alabama in Common Core, is misrepresenting "Alabama" Common Core Standards as not the copyrighted Common Core. However the application for No Child Left Behind Waiver show the truth. It is Common Core Standards (copyrighted) plus the portion he can add up to 15 %. Parental rights over children's education will be lost as it will be controlled by outsiders. Hear on our podcasts what parents who have been under it for years are saying--State of Georgia's parents and teachers says it is a dumbing down. Get to know about the two ed philosophies!
- This should be front page news--1,536 New York State Principals say they are very concerned that at the state level change is being imposed in a rapid manner and without high-quality evidentiary support (of course as Common Core not pilot tested). They are banning together to tell their legislature the dangers they see:
a) With a focus on the end of year testing, there inevitably will be a narrowing of the curriculum as teachers focus more on test preparation and skill and drill teaching.
b) Schools will have an incentive to place struggling students in lower-level classes without standardized assessments.... If schools use Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) scores, as suggested by Commissioner King, schools might be more reluctant to challenge students upward for fear that poor test performance might result in teachers being unfairly penalized.
c) Teachers will subtly be surely be incentivized to avoid students with health issues, students with disabilities, English Language Learners or students suffering from emothional issues.
d) The dynamic between students and teacher will change. Instead of "teacher and student versus the exam," it will be "teacher versus students' performance" on the exam.
e) Collaboration among teachers will be replaced by competition. http://www.newyorkprincipals.org/
