Warning: The Common Core Standards May Be Harmful to Children
Yatvin, Joanne
Phi Delta Kappan, v94 n6 p42-44 Mar 2013
The author, a longtime teacher and principal, levels harsh criticisms against the English/language arts standards of the Common Core State Standards. Some standards call on young children to behave like high school seniors, making fine distinctions between words or literary devices, carrying on multiple processes simultaneously, and expressing their understandings in precise academic language, she says, while others expect them to have a strong literary background after only two or three years of schooling.
