Indiana Teacher Says Quality Instructors Better Than Common Core

In an op-ed in the Indianapolis Star (5/29, Neal), teacher Andrea Neal expresses skepticism about the Common Core Standards, noting that since they were adopted by most states in 2010, “questions have arisen about their quality and cost.” Meanwhile, she writes, Common Core supporters “are spewing a great deal of hyperbole in their attempt to preserve it.” Neal relates a number of published arguments against the Common Core, and concludes that “quality instructional materials in the hands of effective teachers are more likely to affect achievement than a rewriting of standards.”
