Three Simple Arguments Against Common Core That Work Whether You Are Left Right Or Center

Three simple arguments against Common Core ( that work whether you come from the Left, Right, or Center)

1. CCSS tests and assessments cost huge amounts of money, and draw funds away from things that make school enjoyable and exciting like art, music, hands on science, and physical education.

2 . CCSS tests discriminate against huge groups of children- particularly Special Needs Students and English Language Learners- for whom the standards are developmentally inappropriate.

3  The "one size fits all" model CCSS requires prevents investing in vocational and technical programs that we desperately need to create jobs for our young people in a fast changing economy

Please distinguish between the tests and the standards.
