Abolishing Common Core

Elijah believes that students should help determine their state's/school district's learning curriculum and standards.

The Common Core Standards do not guarantee improvements in testing on the global scale. The Common Core Standards straddle the middle ground of education – either better than some states or worse than others. The Common Core Standards is a program pushed by the government – Adopt the program or no money. That doesn't sound like state's rights. The Common Core Standards cannot be tailored to all of the diverse populations of our nation. Some states are different and wold probably want to go more in detail than common core curriculum provides. It seems that the main reasons for this push for common core curricula standards in education are more closely connected with international competition than with the desire to improve our teaching and learning skills as a nation. While in theory having a national standard for education sounds progressive and full of possibilities for advancement as a society, reality presents a more practical pessimism of the switch over.
