By choosing to adopt the Common Core, Arkansas has dramatically boosted the quality, clarity, and rigor of its expectations in these two critical areas.
The agreement was very high between the Common Core math standards and the math standards in place in the highest performing nations.
Some critics have led people to believe that these percentages are meant to direct learning exclusively in English classrooms. They are not.
Teachers of senior English classes, for example, are not required to devote 70 percent of reading to informational texts. Stotsky and others have also charged that the Common Core will push high-quality literature out of the classroom. In fact, the standards devote a disproportionately large amount of attention on demonstrating the quality, complexity, and rigor of the texts students should be reading each year.
The small number of technical documents included in these lists is dwarfed by the volume of great authors, works of literature, and literary nonfiction that the standards hold up as exemplary. Hirsch, author of Cultural Literacy and founder of the Core Knowledge Foundation, strongly supports the standards.
Some critics, such as Dr. Again, a close reading of the standards reveals the opposite is true. The Common Core math standards prioritize essential content. In the early grades, this means that arithmetic is heavily weighted, that students are asked to learn to automaticity their basic math facts, and that they are asked to master the standard algorithms.
This is content they need to know—cold—in order to be prepared for the upper level math work they will do in high school and beyond. You can only move on to more advanced content when you have fully mastered essential prerequisite knowledge and skills. The reality, however, is that the Kindergarten through seventh grade Common Core standards include all of the prerequisite content students will need to have learned to be prepared for Algebra I in the eighth grade.
Now, I respect Dr. But he and others have implied that few mathematicians have signed off on the quality of the standards. The committee that wrote the standards included over a dozen academic mathematicians, including its chairman, a mathematician from Harvard. These are not acolytes of fuzzy math. And the quality of the standards shows it. The second major charge against the Common Core is that they are creatures of the federal government, akin to ObamaCare. Here I have more sympathy with the critics. But the history is very clear.

These standards started out as a state effort, with support from private entities like the Gates Foundation. It was the governors and state superintendents who came together, voluntarily, to draft higher common standards, because they acknowledged that their own state standards were set too low. There was already momentum behind the standards when the Obama administration intervened. Thankfully, in my view, Republicans in Congress are working to ensure that not another cent of federal funding, and not a whiff of federal coercion, is allowed going forward when it comes to the Common Core.
The Common Core started out as state standards, and they need to remain state standards. Washington needs to butt out.
