What do you think of the Common Core?

Has your state adopted the Common Core State Standards?

Do you think it's good or bad?  Why?

I think our district has now and I havent done my research on it yet.  I know that is bad of me.

 NO, my state has not officially adopted them yet.  I think that they go into effect in Pennsylvania in the 2014-15 school year.  However, our school district is in the process of aligning their curriculum with the common core standards now since it isn't an easy process.  I was just in a meeting with our curriculum director and this subject came up.  The funniest thing for me is that some of the changes seem like moving backwards to me.  What we now teach at the end of Pre-Algebra won't be taught until Alegbra I.  I'm not sure who something like that would benefit.

I think we have. I usually just smile and nod when people start talking about the different standards.

 What do you mean by "my dd is first year that has it"?  It is something that is implemented for every grade, not just one.  Common Core would require realigning curriculum across every grade level.

 As a teacher, what do you think of Common Core?  When will it be implemented in your state?

Nope

Common core will be changing the testing. My dd year will be the first to no longer have FCAT in third grade and to have new test based on common core .
