The Common Core and Democratic Education: Examining Potential Costs and Benefits to Public and Private Autonomy
Bindewald, Benjamin J.; Tannebaum, Rory P.; Womac, Patrick
Democracy & Education, v24 n2 Article 4 2016
This conceptual paper assesses prevalent critiques of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and analyzes content from the CCSS in language arts and literacy to determine whether the standards are likely to support or undermine key democratic aims of education. The authors conclude that critiques of the CCSS have some merit but are generally overstated and misdirected, and the standards give inadequate attention to the development of public autonomy but an ideal amount of attention to development of private autonomy.
