Listen to WUNC's Reema Khrais unpack the argument that Common Core is developmentally inappropriate.

Since the beginning of this year, many legislators and critics have dubbed Common Core "developmentally inappropriate.


They argue that the new Math and English standards should be repealed because they are not suitable for some students.

"I know there is some age and grade inappropriateness,” said Republican Sen. Jerry Tillman at a legislative meeting earlier this year. “I’ve talked with teachers.”

Lawmakers, in particular, rarely elaborate on how exactly they're inappropriate, only to say that the standards are confusing and frustrating to teachers, students and parents.
