Re: looking for critiques of common core standards

Subject: [arn-l] looking for critiques of common core standards
Bob Peterson posted this to the RS list:
I am looking for progressive critiques of the Common Core State
Standards. I looking for any of the following:
a) critiques of the content of common core standards
b) critiques of the way these standards were developed - by whom and
financed by whom?
c) the role of corporations, testing companies, multinational publishing
companies in defining how teachers will now be expected/forced? to
"teach" to the standards - through development of on-line lessons,
d) responses by community, parents and educators to fight for engaging,
multicultural, student centered, rigorous curriculum in their schools.
Thanks in advance.
