This year I’ve seen more and more discontent in my Facebook feed regarding “Common Core” .

After reading up on the pros and cons of "common core," it seems to me to be just as much about international placement and statistics, as it is about giving children a better education.

Some of the pros, it seems, make sense, at least in theory. The cons, however seem  to outweigh the pros.

Where do you come out on this topic? I’m just a guy on the radio who doesn’t really grasp the whys and point to the new method. I would love to hear from teachers on this subject and those who are passionate on either side of the issue. Feel free to comment below on our facebook page and twitter.
