"If you sit kids down hour after hour doing low grade clerical work don't be surprised if they start to fidget" Ken Robinson on Public School.

I thought Ken Robinson, a British immigrant, would have a socialist view on Public Education. In this video I found this was not the case. Many times I find myself at odds with the opinions of European immigrants especially on education, however, I found this opinion to mirror my own. Common core is fuel to the fire on the problems our education system already has. Education is a creative art, teaching should be entertaining, we have to change the way we educate, and bring the power to do so back down to the smallest levels... the School and the Classroom!

Common Core is a new standard adopted by states and mandated by the federal government. It takes away a teacher as well as the schools ability to set their own standards as well as plan their own curriculum. It also subs as a data mining operation where students test scores are sold to commercial companies for marketing purposes. It pulls away a great deal of freedom and creativity in the teaching process as well as the ability to have non-traditional education in public schools. Anything mandated from the top down is generally bad for progress.
