    The conclusions of this study seem rather obvious.

    Federally Funded Study: Common Core Sunk U.S. Kids’ Test Scores

    “Contrary to our expectation, we found that [Common Core] had significant negative effects on 4th graders’ reading achievement during the 7 years after the adoption of the new standards, and had a significant negative effect on 8th graders’ math achievement 7 years after adoption based on analyses of NAEP composite scores,” the Center on Standards, Alignment, Instruction and Learning (C-SAIL) preliminary study said. “The size of these negative effects, however, was generally small.”

    ...If CC Never Happened, Kids Would Be Better Off.

    That Common Core would turn out to be a big failure seems not only obvious now, but, but was obvious when it was implemented. Another stupid mistake lauded by a very stupid education establishment. No wonder US schools suck.

    Common core itself isn't bad. I've read the standards. They are reasonable and a good thing, but a bit too vague. That said, most of the crap sold to teach Common Core was horrible. They used the vagueness of the standards and produced utter crap in the name of Common Core.

    Here is a link to the standards. There is nothing wrong with them.

    That said, if I were the emperor of education, I would mandate something like the Cultural Literacy standards.
