It’s a shame about Common Core and how it was tied up into Microsoft’s push to get tablets into schools to defeat Apple’s stronghold etc. CONCEPTUALLY, a lot of Common Core _was solid_ and still is. But what happened in implementation is, instead of allowing children to avail themselves of the EXTRA OPTIONS that Common Core _had within it_, they instead implemented it as if it was a REPLACEMENT for their teaching methods, and then only “picked one” instead of the many. Regimenting Common Core which had within itself a lot of flexibility for individual students was a huge error and it should have been rolled out slowly over a period of 10 years or so.
