From WHAM 13, the ABC affiliate in Rochester, NY reports that the local teachers’ union is opposed to the Common Core.
While some of the reasons for their opposition is rather self-centered, they do bring up some great points. Kids, parents and teachers were not prepared.
The focus in this segment and the union’s opposition seems to be more on the tests than the Common Core itself. Both are a problem and the Common Core is the root of the problem of the assessments. I do love that some parents are putting their foot down and exercising their sovereignty in their child’s education by opting out of taking the test.
More parents need to follow that example.
