ROB JENKINS: Three good reasons to oppose Common Core

  // Thursday, 14 August 2014 18:11 //

Common Core supporters love to characterize people who oppose the initiative as ignorant or misled. Don’t let that stop you. The stakes are too high. As parents, we cannot allow ourselves to be intimidated.

Fortunately, logic is on our side. Here are three compelling reasons to oppose Common Core:

The name says it all. One Latin word for “common” is “vulgus,” which we usually translate as “vulgar.

” It means literally “the crowd.”

Is that what we want for our kids — for them to go along with the crowd, to do exactly what everyone else is doing, in their educational pursuits or anything else? Or do we want our school curriculum to both reflect and bring out the unique talents and abilities of each child?
