The oligarchs pushing Common Core don’t send their kids to schools that use the Common Core
the same oligarchs who have brought this insane Common Core to fruition do not send their kids to schools that use Common Core.
They send them to Waldorf schools.
Or Quaker schools.
Or Montessiori schools.
Or the Lab School.
You know, the kinds of schools that aren’t run like army drill camps, where the teachers aren’t graded using test scores, where the kids don’t take high stakes standardized tests all throughout the year, where students get to explore meaningful subjects and lessons rather than endless test prep and drills.
I don’t know if the Common Core is ‘insane,’ but it’s worth questioning the belief of many that it’s okay to impose a certain kind of education on others’ children that they’d never agree to for their own…
