OH MY.....The MOMMIES are AWAKE!! Children affected negatively by Common Core style teaching are now being diagnosed with CC syndrome in the state of New York. Thank God for the parents and teachers in New York.
Several hundred people packed an auditorium at Port Chester Middle
School on Monday in a continuation of the wave of criticism and concern
about the state’s new Common Core learning standards and the pace at
which they’ve been implemented.The
three-plus-hour event was the second stop of state Education
Commissioner John King’s “listening tour,” which was scheduled after
King was roundly criticized for abruptly canceling a series of forums
planned by the New York State Parent Teacher Association after a raucous
Oct. 10 forum in Poughkeepsie.
A week later, King announced 16 forums across the state, with Port Chester being the only local stop.Common
Core is a state-led effort that seeks to provide consistent standards
and appropriate benchmarks for all students, regardless of where they
live, and prepare them for college and the workforce. It is a product of
bipartisan effort by the National Governors and the Council of Chief
State School Officers and was developed in collaboration with teachers,
school administrators and experts. It has been adopted by 45 states and
the District of Columbia.
