Those who have followed my blog over on TeachersinTransition.com know that I haven’t developed a firm opinion about Common Core. I have listened to the debate from a somewhat elevated perch, frankly, because I don’t have to teach them, and I don’t have a dog in the hunt, as some might say.
Having said that, I do like to monitor the discussion, and I noticed today that David Brooks has come out with a commentary, characterizing much of the debate as a “circus.” He may be right about that.
I am going to share his article here. Feel free to read what he has to say and come to your own conclusion.
