Get Answers to your Common Core Questions by Dr. Peg Luksik

In Common Core, students and teachers will be evaluated with Common Core aligned assessments, and rewarded or punished based on the results.

Common Core proponents call the assessments valid and reliable.

Valid and reliable are actual standards for testing, used in medicine, manufacturing, finance and education.

Do the Common Core assessments meet those standards?

The answer is a resounding, “NO!”

In Invalid and Unreliable: The Flawed Testing of Common Core, Dr. Peg Luksik uses research and actual examples from the tests themselves to show how the results of these assessment results range from meaningless scores to outright discrimination.

What happens to our schools when the goal of our educational system moves from enlightening a child to reaching a government mandated standard?

The shift began in 1994, with Goals 2000. It was expanded in 2001, with No Child Left Behind.

And now, after 20 years of this federally-mandated, standards-based approach to education, we are being told the American education is failing and that Common Core is the answer.

Common Core does not change the mandate, it just centralizes control of the standards.

Is it possible to mandate that every child learn the same information to a pre-set level on a pre-set schedule?

In Should Our Children Be Standardized?, Dr. Peg Luksik uses actual research to show us what happens, at the classroom level, when local schools attempt to implement this flawed approach to education.
