Another View — Diane Sekula: Why this teacher opposes Common Core

Communist Core is truly a fitting title:

The day last fall when I heard that administrators went around to math teachers’ classrooms at my school and took away their old texts, manipulatives and other materials, leaving them only with the new, Common Core-aligned math materials, my blood froze. What happened to differentiation, professional experience and judgment, and inspiring students with creative and fun lessons?

What about teaching moments? What if the students had their own questions they wanted to investigate and solve?
