Common Core and Young Children

The Alliance for Childhood is calling for the withdrawal of the portion of the Common Core Standards dealing with young children. Their statement includes a good explanation of what they object to and why.

I happen to agree with this group for a change. Also, a follow up to what is going on in Florida. There's an attempt being made to alter teacher retirement. Instead of going out on the average of your best five years, Florida want to change it so that all the years are averaged. Meaning you will retire at about half of what you had hoped. I imagine this is all in retaliation of teachers not opting in on the common standards.
