    @Steve Cottrell:

    You don't get it. Do you?

    Let the teachers, school administrators, and parents plan the curriculum.

    Why the feds with their pathetic record of over spending, and poor teaching strategies?

    It's FAR to soon to evaluate common core success or failure at this point. Perhaps in McAllen Texas one can tell at a glance. Perhaps the schools there need to have a new evaluation plan every year as Utah schools have had the past several years.

    Use something for a prior to uninformed replacement with someone else's new idea.

    Who starts these trends?

    Teachers or the Feds?

    Some questions:

    Hmm? Has the Head Start program reduced poverty?

    Has standardized testing improved learning?

    Hows that common core working out? As good as cooperative learning?

    Why are a third of our college grads from another country?
