Could Not Have Said It Any Better: Quin Hillyer’s “Throw Common Core Out the Door.”

New Orleans native Quin Hillyer is a contributing editor for National Review. He published this article in the Baton Rouge Advocate, and it’s a damning indictment of the Common Core/PARCC debacle playing out on the Louisiana stage. I have included the link to his article below.

My favorite quote from the article is this:

“Louisiana ought to jettison all formal affiliation with these controversial, counterproductive, national “standards” for (mis)education. While students struggle with incomprehensible approaches to simple arithmetic and are poisoned with “Core-aligned” smut readings that would give Grandma the vapors, the Bayou State should produce its own indices of school success — and then encourage curricular innovation to ace those indices.”
