From the blogger known as ‘educationrealist’, here’s a penetrating look at Common Core, and some of the reasons why it is such a bad idea.

One of the reasons it’s a bad idea: it fails to acknowledge an essential and utterly self-evident truth, namely that the ability to learn and master complex topics is not evenly distributed among members of our species.

And if you ‘progressives’ think we are making progress in education — well, after you’re done reading the post linked above, have a go at this Harvard entrance exam from 1900 or so, and get a feeling for what it once meant, in a bygone age of the world, to be ‘ready for college’.
