Lots of people are weighing in on the implications of Tuesday’s election results.
One final thought from yours truly: Lots of reformers, especially those in the ed-tech camp, continue to think that Common Core is just about the best thing produced in eons. So there’s a good deal of cheerleading going on, and most reform practitioners assume CC is a done deal; they spend their time thinking about how to capitalize on its changes to the system.
But more and more, I’m of a mind that trouble is on the horizon. There are the backlashes from the right, the massive challenges associated with implementation that have been all but ignored, and a brewing unease about the testing consortia.
I’m not predicting anything dire. Yet.
But there’s more reason to worry about the future of CC now than at any time in the last three years.
