NY joins KY as Common Core test failures mount across the nation
Common Core Grade Report:
New York- FAIL
Tennessee- Pending but expected to fail.
New York has now joined Kentucky this week in announcing the dismal failure of Common Core in their states.
The end of year assessment tests are in and it aint purdy!
New York reports only 31 percent are competent on assessment tests using Common Core as it’s standard. Some New York school districts have reported only a 5 percent competency rate. Similar scores for Kentucky.
Dismal by all standards. If this were an domestic animal, my daddy would have taken it out in the woods and shot it…….in the head…….twice!!!
Conclusion and realization? Common Core aint working and it comes as no surprise to those that saw this coming.
Common Core really is a hyped up mess, make up dripping down her face and looking for a prom date….and one heel broken and an ugly date.
Besides being a top down nationalization of our schools, it is mostly unproven and promotes equalization of all students by teaching down to the lowest denominator. Think about that for a moment. Dumbing down to the lowest denominator? Which child from your childhood comes to mind, never mind, it’s too visual right now, I’m about to go hug my higher than the standard child and hang on for dear life to prevent the slide backward.
It is the dumbing down of our school system, our children.
It is the socialist model.
Who would have thought that revamping math to an unrecognizable entity, shifting a focus to reading technical manuals instead of the literary masters while erasing multiple choice for essay answers would raise scores?
I surely didnt!
Supporters of Common Core are saying it will take about 5 years to get it right and see tests improve. 5 years?
A whole generation of students finish 8th grade and graduate before we get it right?
In the meantime a student dumb as a box of rocks tries to get into college , can’t pass the exam, then gets a job where he can’t even read the men’s bathroom sign or fill out a job application or form a complete sentence. What a nice trade we have brokered?
Parents and teachers should be sideways over this. This curriculum, ie new common core standards were implemented without a smidgen of shared information.
A group of high paid politicians inside an NGO, Non Governmental Organization called NGA and an ultra liberal education think tank, CCSSO decided our schools need a new direction and they just do it without a bit of input from those receiving the golden wiener.
Even our elected officials didn’t know what they were voting for. Our elected officials pulled the Nancy Pelosi look alike vote, vote for it then see what is in it.
Our houses voted and had somewhat of an idea there was some new standards in there but got the message that it was business as usual for it was standards they have seen before. The exchange of 500 million dollars for their “yes” vote quickly closed the mouths of any objections.
The vote for Race to the Top was signed and the standards were not even developed, yet they hurriedly went from John to prostitute and the transaction was complete.
You would think at least a questionnaire for our teachers or parents to fill out would be in line before prostituting out our children to the highest bidder.
Bureaucrats inside liberal think tanks take a bribe of 500 million dollars from Barrack Hussein Obama to overhaul Tennessee’s educational system and now we are the bend over lover that never gets formally introduced to mom and dad.
Teachers get the short end of this deal. They get bypassed for input into the new standards and as a bonus get told that if they say anything they will be living in a cardboard box across the street from the nearest retail business searching for food from inside the four walls of a dumpster.
The distrust of our teachers drives this program. Teachers are gonna get blamed for these bad test scores that dont even have the supporting teaching materials to accompany these new standards. After all, they are expensive and it will take a while to get them. God bless our teachers as we witness the walls colliding on them as Common Core sinks it’s fangs into their careers!
So, when “the teacher” fails, their pay drops off and they are replaced by trained robots from DC or recycled through some dirty teacher washing machine and sent back to the front lines with day old drool from the left side of their face onto a snug bib around their neck.
Teachers are not able to do what they know how to do. They are stuck teaching to a test that has no rules or established guidelines.
When this failure happens across Tennessee and it will, the Feds will gobble up the bad schools, do away with school boards and local control and wallah, top down federalization of our schools under the stealthy hand of a Marxist from the White House.
Folks Common Core has never been tested! It has no template or precedence. It has not been tweaked, this is the first roll out.
Even cars get their tires kicked and get a spin around the block before a price tag gets placed on the rear passenger window.
Its being pushed by multi billionaires Bill and Melinda Gates who live high enough up in the hills to be starved of the necessary oxygen to make rational decisions.
Their endless supply of do as I say grants are paving the way to this nightmare and the money they stand to make on the much needed software and supporting materials will give them enough ka ching well into the next millennium.
Where do we go when we hit bottom? When Tennessee like New York and Kentucky gets an F?
What happens to a generation of children that missed out on a pretty good education and leaves for the workforce about two bricks shy of a full load?
What about the students left in lower grades that now must survive in a post common core world where an educational system has been brought to ruins and forced to look for an alternative…again!
We now have our second generation unable to count, read or place 3 blocks vertically in a row?Wow!
What a price to pay for a revolution on education by DC elitist and promoted by those with less than lofty goals for our country.
Then again, perhaps they did accomplish one goal. Failure and embarrassment for our country and a bunch of kids with hardly an education.
For now plant your feet, brace for the oncoming high speed train wreck. It’s speeding down the track and we know where it’s headed.
Talk to your elected leaders and let’s stop common core in it’s tracks!
Choo choo chooooooo!!!
