JICYMI, 500 experts have “grave concerns” about the impact of Common Core on children… and the State? That’s right, none.

Just in case you missed it, (hereinafter on this blog JICYMI),

Joint Statement of Early Childhood Health and Education Professionals on the Common Core Standards Initiative Issued by the Alliance for Childhood March 16, 2010

WE HAVE GRAVE CONCERNS about the core standards for young children now being written by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The proposed standards conflict with compelling new research in cognitive science, neuroscience, child development, and early childhood education about how young children learn, what they need to learn, and how best to teach them in kindergarten and the early grades.”

Pretty powerful stuff, right?

In my educated opinion, yes.

So, where’s the State’s evidence to challenge and/or discredit the professional opinion of over 500 experts who specialize in the field of education/child development?

Thats right, the State has no such evidence to support Common Core, because there is none.
