The Common Core Adopted in the 19th century, this old and very outdated curriculum has been used in Americas public schools for ages. But is it helping anymore? Washington post writes that “the curriculum now shaping America’s schools reflects the “big idea” of that earlier era—the factory system, standardization of parts, mass production, centralized decision making, and passive worker compliance.
None of those fit the present era. Social change has seen to that, and the rate of that change is accelerating. Change requires adaptation, and adaptation requires creativity, autonomy, exploitation of differing perspectives, and continuous questioning of authority.” Which is not the case with the current state of our education system. We must work together to get out state governors to change the current path our education system has taken and they must change it into something that works with the next generations.
