Do Common Core Standards Measure Up?

  // Thursday, 31 July 2014 07:49 //

It took comedian Louis C.K. and his 3.3 million Twitter followers to ignite America’s passion about Common Core State Standards. That’s the new set of English and math requirements for kindergarten through grade 12, now in place for public school children in California and 45 other states. “My kids used to love math. Now it makes them cry. Thanks standardized testing and common core!” Louis tweeted on April 28.

Suddenly, the controversy took public flight after being largely ignored by major media during the five years it has taken to develop and implement the program. Salon, Politico, The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Huffington Post and dozens of agitated academic bloggers weighed in with opinions about the controversial education plan. Parents like Louis, who has two daughters in public school, started ranting online about their children’s absurd homework problems.
