Do you believe all states should follow the Common Core Standards?

    Do you believe all states should follow the Common Core Standards?

    If the Federal Government getting too involved?

    Yes I think it is ideal to have national standards as long as they are good standards; I believe the CCS are good standards...

    I think that the Common Core Standards are good and that all states should follow them - but I think there should still some leeway for teachers to teach the way they want to teach it. Right now - at least in our district - every teacher in every school must teach the exact same lesson on the exact same day at the exact same time. All throughout the district kindergarten reading core time is 9:10 - 11:10 - intervention is 11:10 - 11:40 each morning. The same is done for math. We must somehow incorporate social studies and science into core reading without changing the lesson we must teach. We have people from our downtown offices come into our buildings without notice to make sure we are doing what we are supposed to be doing. If we are not, we get lectured and asked to re-attend an in-service so that we can re-learn what we are supposed to be doing.
    On one hand, I can see why this is important. As a child I moved around A LOT! I missed out on some very important lessons because I would leave one school before the idea was taught, only to move to another school that had already taught it. This happened if I moved across the district, across the state or across the country. So having things this detailed would help kids who are like I was back then.
    On the other hand, I can't believe how strict our district is being. We have absolutely no freedom to do anything for fun or for those "teachable moments." As a teacher, it is driving me crazy!

    The core standards should not be the same.  The core standards were created by one group of people.  Should one group of people decide what is right for everyone?  Absolutely not.  Did we appoint these decision makers?  What is their background?  Have they ever been in a classroom?  By having different standards, we can all learn what works and what doesn't.  We can make comparisons in all subject areas.  We can become better.

    No...the problem with the common core is that it is centralized. We rely on a group of people who make rules for everyone. What if they are wrong? We need to take education out of the hands of the politicians and back to the local community.

    What are the Common Core Standards?  I do feel that the Federal Government is becoming too involved, though.

      CCS are teaching objectives that have been created for the US to use in school curriculum.  They were created in an attempt for the Fed Gov't to get school districts to increase rigor so US education will rate higher in the world.
