Isn't common core really all about leveraging all school tax dollars that are collected on a local level (including wealthy and affluent zip code area 45066) and then allowing the federal government to suck up local tax dollars and then "spread the wealth" because the federal government "feels" like the system works better to collectively dumbdown the masses?<quoted text>
Why is it that a child in Alabama should be treated differently than a child in New York? They both wear the same diapers and eat the same food, etc.
Common core is about standards NOT curriculum. Suggesting that children in Alabama can't learn at the same rate as children in New York (or anywhere else) is a logic that would lead that we need different traffic laws in New York as we have in Alabama.
Probe deeper into the more you know about common core and you might agree with those who believe that common core standards are more focused on perceived needs of income equality, other than raising the bar for excellence in education putting priority on each individual's highest academic achievement potential.
