SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON COMMON CORE

common core pioneerPioneer Institute Executive Director Jim Stergios talks about the basis for education reform in Massachusetts, and how that state-driven success model differs from Common Core national education standards. He corrects some of the myths about Common Core, drawing on Pioneer Institute’s extensive research to show that the national standards were not state-led, violate three federal laws, and will far exceed cost estimates for implementation.  Executive Director  Stergios also talks about the mediocre quality of Common Core national education standards, drawing on Pioneer’s extensive research to show that in ELA and math, the national standards will weaken the level of instruction in several states. He also discusses the negative impact that Common Core will have on school choice.
