Common Core is Damaging American Student Readiness for College

Joy Pullmann at the James G. Martin Center outlined why Common Core is hurting American students’ readiness for a college career:

Unfortunately, in the era of Common Core, the main educational emphasis is “career-readiness.” It drops the vision of American citizens as free people with the right and responsibility of self-rule, and instead treats students like “human resources” that officials must shape to perform some function in our increasingly government-controlled society.

There’s nothing wrong with technical training, but it’s damaging to make it the central purpose of public education, as Common Core does.
