Professor Attacked for Her Opposition to Common Core

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 9.37.03 AMLocal school boards are remembering that they are members of INDEPENDENT School Districts across the United States, the latest being Guthrie, OK. For those who understand the difference between Common standards vs. Excellent standards, we know the name of Sandra Stotsky! High standards are so important to her, she has made hers available for free. She is known for writing the ELA standards for MA, which were regarded as the highest standards in the land. Dr. Stotsky refused to sign off on the Common Core standards, and has helped legislators, parents and educators everywhere to understand why Common Core is NOT OK or acceptable for our students.

“ I am now helping two local school districts, one in Wisconsin, the other in New Hampshire, to develop first-class standards for ELA. I do this pro bono, too. The school boards in both districts voted out Common Core unanimously and, using their own legal authority (which local school boards in most states have), also voted to develop their own standards and curriculum.
The idea is beginning to cascade. The school board in Wakefield, New Hampshire (see video above) just voted out Common Core, 4 to 1, two days ago, and then voted to adopt the old Massachusetts standards (4 yes votes, with 1 abstention). This is what is known as self-government in action.”
Sandra Stotsky, Ed.D. is Professor Emerita at the University of Arkansas.
