This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Robin Gordon. Gordon is one of many people complaining about Common Core, and some parents are opting their children our of the associated PARCC test.
Gordon says Common Core could have been implemented better. In her words: Common Core is OK, if they would implement it slowly, starting with kindergarten, first grade, and adding a year at a time. You can't expect students who have been taught a certain method all their school years, to have to relearn many things. The kids in the upper grades are struggling with this. It took many years for our education to get into this state and it'll take at least 12 years to rectify it. This is just my humble opinion.
