A year’s experience and better support should improve Common Core results

  // Thursday, 14 August 2014 17:37 //

No one should have expected huge improvements in the results of math and English tests tied to the still-new Common Core standards. Such a transformation in education is not going to happen overnight.

The standards were rolled out last year in New York State. It has been a long year, with some parents and teachers railing against the new standards. Parents unaccustomed to seeing their children perform poorly on tests blamed Common Core, and some directed their children not to take the tests.

The rollout of Common Core coincided with a new teacher evaluation system based, in part, on test results. Teachers didn’t like the idea of being evaluated based on those tests.

The Common Core standards were not put in place to raise the stress level of students or get teachers fired.
