In How Not to argue with Parents about Common Core, Michele Malkin zeroes in on why parents are frustrated with not only Common Core State Standards (CCSS) but also with the education and political leaders racing to implement it.
The leaders behind CCSS aren’t used to being questioned — let alone by parents convinced that the standards make their children nothing more than guinea pigs. Parents don’t like it nor the condescending attitude of educators telling them to calm down.
Malkin puts her finger on growing parent frustration. It’s found in wherever there is a battle over CCSS. You find it in New York and Indiana and as well as California and North Carolina.
Malkin identifies the frustration. However the real question is: what are parents and concerned citizens going to do about it? That’s a key question to be addressed at Common Core Standards: What’s Next, hosted by the Civitas Institute. The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on November 14th at the Sheraton-Greensboro (Koury Center). The day is highlighted by Heather Crossin and Erin Tuttle, the two moms from Indiana who helped to propel the fight against Common Core Standards in the Hoosier state.
