Are you for or against this? Most parent & teachers in my state are against.
Are they teaching to the test? What does dumbing down really mean?

I like it. The common core is very similar to what the previous standards were for my state. I think the best benefit of this is the fact that if kids move to another state, then most likely they will not be behind at their new school.

Does a bad test score effect the child?
It depends on the state. For my state (Georgia), the "important" test years are 3rd, 5th, and 8th. In 3rd grade the students must pass the reading part of the CRCT (state standardized test). In 5th grade, the must pass the reading and math section, and in 8th grade they must pass the reading, math, and science section. If a student fails, then they can retake the test and even go to summer school to help them pass the test.
