Middle-school teacher Mark Barnes wonders in this blog post whether Common Core State Standards and education reform can happen at the same time. Barnes, a member of his district's Common Core Transition Team, writes that the rigid standards do not foster true education reform, which would call for the abolition of standardized testing and accountability, and instead allow teachers to "create vibrant, chaotic, collaborative, technology-rich classrooms that encourage a thirst for learning."
Can education be reformed while under common core?
