Some San Diego Parents Advocating Against Common Core

depritinator - how about you let YOUR kids be the lab rats for the "field testing"? The resistance is not blind. Your ignorance of what IS happening in other states who have already started this does seem to be however. EVERY parent who cares about their children SHOULD be concerned about EVERY aspect of their education including wholesale changes to how they are taught, what they are taught, how they are tested and the data collection on them. Blind acceptance of creating "uniformity" among the states, or even within a state, should be a big warning for every parent. The standards themselves? Good, bad, indifferent, every parent should learn from the experts about them and not just take the word of bureaucrats and financial stakeholders. Kudos Mary for putting on these events. I hope every parent and teacher who doesn't believe kids should be treated like laboratory animals should attend these.
