I ran across this article that popped up because I have a strong interest in issues related to teacher transition, and this was offered through Google Alerts. The post starts with this paragraph:
“Common Core has certainly changed the K-12 classroom scene in its short implementation and perhaps the group that has suffered the most during the transition period is teachers. In many cases, educators are being asked to accomplish the impossible: prepare students for new test standards without the right training or curriculum to get there.”
Teachers have been asked to “accomplish the impossible” ever since No Child Left Behind came out in 2001, and policy makers have simply doubled down with every new reform and “tweak” to the current system.
I won’t be able to do justice to the article, so I invite you to take a look for yourself. The title of the post is “Teachers–The Greatest Common Core Casualty?” Please feel free to read and share.
