Shepherd: Instead of Mandatory Standards for All.
Short post (and would someone please listen to him!):
Robert D. Shepherd answers a fundamental question about the Common Core:
“Question: What should we have instead of a single set of mandatory standards for all?
“Answer: Competing, voluntary standards that can serve as guidelines to be followed, or not, by independent, site-managed schools in which teachers make their own decisions about what should be taught, when, and to whom.”
