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…
Every time I see this warmed up reconstituted mishash of OLD ideas I become very frightened about the depths of mediocrity that today’s students are plunged into. It’s truly frightening.
Everyone should be so lucky as to send their kids to Waldorf schools – they are amazing!!
