no no no, not Mason Classical Academy. That’s in my town. Controversial… intermixing with public school board politics and odd loan situations and hushed violations… I think this is just marketing hyperbole.
I might have believed it anywhere else but this school has a darkness.
I’m sure ditching common core can work great but anything coming out of Mason Classical Academy is creepy Betsy DeVos level stuff.
It was rushed, applied poorly. Concept sounded good. Lots of good academic research went into it for decades.
But… when it got into the hands of those putting it in place… and then the shady deals with Pearson and Microsoft and stuff, all riding on the coattails of No Child Left Behind from Bush W era… it was a disaster waiting.
Thankfully Obama rescinded “No Child” and I think what’s left of Common Core will start to go away state by state, bit by bit,
The thing I’m on the watchout for is: WHAT will the replacers replace it with?
