Standing Against Common Core

Recommended Posts

Alexis Parraz

Recently back in Astoria, New York Congresswoman Parraz made the following statements about the subject of Common Core and Standardized Testing.

Quote

Ladies and Gentleman, Common Core is part of the problem not part of the solution.  We must eliminate the Common Core cirriculum from the Public School System and we must do away with all forms of Standarized Testing. The fact is Common Core cirriculum and Standardized Testing is clearly biased by social-class, ethnic, regional and is harmful to all sorts of other cultural differences. It favors those who can afford Test Prep while keeping down those families who cannot making it harder for Poor kids to have a brighter future in that they may one day have a better life and an easier time than their parents did. They limit the amount teachers can adapt to different children who learn differently than the others forcing children to change how they learn or suffer the concequence of getting left in the dust.  These are just some of the clearest and most glaring problems with Common Core and all Standardized Testing and I promise if elected to the United States Senate I will offer a bill very early in session to assure that once and for all we do away with these archaic methods and focus more on the children, foster all learning methods and prepare these children to face the real world an tomorrow's job market.

Momentum: 3

I almost expected this character to go the other way on the issue. That alone is noteworthy.

Ending both common core and standardized testing would return a lot of control of education to the states, making most Republicans happy, while many liberals are swayed by Parraz's socioeconomic pitch. However, corporations that profit off these tests are, for pretty clear reasons, opposed to getting rid of them.
