The Common Core

by James M. Odom

 

     I just had the pleasure of participating via web-cast in a lecture hosted by the Family Research Council concerning the Common Core standards.  I have had numerous questions and comments (almost entirely negative) in recent months from customers and potential customers (even vendors!) regarding these standards.  The excellent lectures and question and answer session are worth all of your time (1 hour and 45 minutes - which I know is hard for those of you with several younger children around, as it was for me).  One of the most important answers given in this lecture was why these standards pose a significant threat to homeschoolers and the institution of homeschooling. I highly commend it to you in its entirety! The address at which you should be able to view it shortly is http://www.frc.org/university/common-core-uncommon-dilemma.

 

Soli Deo Gloria,

 

James.
