The CCSS have been in the news in my area several times this week. The local university has had open meetings about it 3 times this week alone. I just saw this today:
Maybe I pay too much attention to what's going on in the PS system, but I still just can't believe most of what I see and hear. I understand what he is saying about not being responsible for the changes, but as much as it sounds like he's trying to soothe it over, his tone doesn't come accross as pleased about the situation. To top it off telling parents to take it directly to the state seems to me to be a lot like passing the buck. If the districts stand up for the parents, wouldn't it be a more effective argument??
OK I'm done venting. :D
