Some big news for high school seniors who plan on attending certain Ivy League schools, Yale University just announced they will no longer require students to take the SAT or ACT essay assessment as an admission requirement. They join Harvard University and Dartmouth College.
Dr. Duke Pesta and Dr. Sandra Stotsky discuss in a new FreedomProject Media video how colleges of education have been a failure in passing on subject mastery for prospective teachers and instead focusing on politics and ideology in the classroom.
Dr. Duke Pesta and Dr. Sandra Stotsky drill down on a new report from the Pioneer Institute that shows how the move to Common Core and their subsequent “new standards” hurt Massachusetts student achievement.
Shane Vander Hart: Kids have struggled with their ability to write for a long time, but Common Core has not helped and, in fact, has hindered student progress.
The Collaborative for Student Success belittling parents and ignoring well-founded research that supports their arguments is a poor method of persuasion.
Eunie Smith & Deborah Love: Even by the bottom-dwelling standards of Common Core propagandists the claims from the latest Twitter study is a bit rich.
Numerous grassroots activists signed an open letter to President-Elect Donald Trump asking him to appoint a Secretary of Education who opposes Common Core.
Jane Robbins: Dishonesty has been a defining characteristic of the campaign to promote and implement the Common Core national standards.
The Pioneer Institute this fall released a new book entitled Drilling through the Core: Why Common Core is Bad for America edited by Peter Wood.
