Common Core Education

Is "Common Core" Education Missing the Mark?

If your child has ever struggled in school, then you know education is not "one size fits all." So it's no surprise that parents are less than pleased with President Obama'a education initiative. Introduced three years ago, Common Core is a policy that provides nationwide educational success standards for every grade and hopes to better prepare students for college, but parents are concerned that it doesn't cater to children's individual needs.

Common Core has become so controversial that parents are taking drastic measures to have it amended, including participating in Don't Send Your Child to School Day, a nationwide Common Core protest occurring on Nov. 18.

To see other reactions to Common Core and how some states are handling the policy, read the full story at The Stir.

Common Core Education could be an amazing policy if it was truely to serve man kind in the long run. As I look at world, the news and how mankind continues to have wars, prisons and so on . . . I know that the solution would be to reeducation mankind with topics that can reshape how we live today. Our educational philosophy of teaching children the skills they need to survive in this unfit world is not a solution. Dont get me wrong I believe that we all should know how to read, write, know math and to be informed as a whole. Its what were teaching, where we are headed as a country and a world if we want to think globally. Aside from my childrens education, I have to teach them the other topics of most importance which is to nurture their God given talents, and constitantly redirecting their thinking and expanding their vision about half the things that are taught at school. We need to educate our people on the very foundamentals of being first caring humans, respect and building a world of one.
