The Common Core: A Disaster for Libraries, a Disaster for Language Arts, a Disaster for American Education
Krashen, Stephen
Knowledge Quest, v42 n3 p36-45 Jan-Feb 2014
This author contends that there never has been a need for the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and there is no evidence that it will do students any good. The Common Core ignores the real problem in American education: poverty. The Common Core movement will be a disaster for libraries and will have a negative impact on nearly every aspect of the educational system. In this article, the author shares his views on why the CCSS will have a negative impact on the educational system. He states that if the public were aware that the CCSS is "a radical untried curriculum overhaul and… nonstop national testing" (Ohanian 2013), the rush to adopt the CCSS would be halted immediately.
