Common Core Standards: Ten Colossal Errors or why I am opposed to the Common Core

Let me start by saying that I am opposed to the Common Core Standards for a variety of reasons. 

 I do not believe that a single measure can address the myriad of problems in education.  I also believe that we need to “follow the money” – where has the Common Core come from?  Who has financed it and who will profit when it is implemented? I do not believe that the winners of the common core will be the students or their parents.  The blog that follows identifies many of the reasons why I oppose the common core but Anthony Cody states it more clearly and better than I can.  After reading this, please pass it on, whether you agree with it or not.  It is entitled “Common Core Standards: Ten Colossal Errors.”
