Sub-standard Standards of 
the Common Core

 English Language Arts (ELA) Standards

 Dr. Sandra Stotsky, University of Arkansas, served on the Common Core  
 Validation Committee but refused to sign off on the ELA standards  
 because of poor quality, empty skill sets, the de-emphasis on literature,  
 and low reading levels, such as 8th grade levels for 12th grade students.  
 Even the Fordham Institute – a Common Core proponent – admitted that  
 some states  already had better standards than the Common Core.

 Math Standards

 Dr. James Milgram of Stanford University, the only mathematician on the  
 Common Core Validation Committee, refused to sign off, stating, “It’s 
 almost a joke to think students [who master the common standards] would
 be ready for math at a university.”

 Next on the Common Core Agenda

 Expect the feds to aggressively push adoption of national standards in 
 science and social studies, just as they have in English and math.

What is the Common Core?

The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) is a set of national K-12 standards developed primarily by a nonprofit called Achieve, Inc., in Washington, D.C. under the auspices of the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).  It was primarily funded by Bill and Melinda Gates.

The Common Core was developed without state legislative authority.




Common Core: Centralized Educational Control Destroys Federalism
Common Core: Education Without Representation or Parental Input
