Topic: Embrace the Common Core

FOR

Carmel Martin, Exec. VP, Center for American Progress and Fmr. Assistant Secretary of Education
Michael Petrilli, President, Fordham Institute & Co-Editor, Knowledge at the Core

AGAINST

Frederick Hess, Resident Scholar and Director of Educational Policy Studies, AEI
Carol Burris, Principal, South Side High School & Blogger, Washington Post’s “Answersheet”

In K-12 education, there is nothing more controversial than the Common Core State Standards, national academic standards in English and math. Adopted by more than 40 states, they were developed, in part, to address concerns that American students were falling behind their foreign counterparts and graduating high school without the necessary skills for college and the workforce. But is this the reform we’ve been looking for? Has the federal government overreached and saddled our schools with standards that have been flawed from the start? Or will the Common Core raise the bar and improve the quality of our children’s education?
