I’m repeating a quote here, a quote that seems applicable to many areas of education today:
“Much of the social history of the Western world over the past three decades has involved replacing what worked with what sounded good.”
― Thomas Sowell
Eduhonesty: So far, this expresses my view of the Common Core perfectly.
P.S. Sowell is an African-American economist who has authored of dozens of books. When I left off, he was a senior fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. I recommend looking up his works.
