    They don't want to administer the tests at the current cost and are playing the state's rights card..

    Maine opted out of the science portion of the NECAP because their kids were getting pounded..

    Blue states are stupidly trying to maintain CC to show how tough they are, especially since we do have a great group at the top long before any of this NCLB/CC..

    Liberal state superintendents are bowing to the Unions as in Indiana, though a red state
    Since private for-profits are involved in developing the standards and selling schools materials to teach the CC, there's a lot of money involved.

    sangha, you're not in the education field. You aren't hearing what's coming ahead like teachers and administrators are. Stop pretending like you know what you're talking about.

    I'll be checking at school to see if the states setting the standards for books has changed much and their copyright dates, Texas and California..

    What I do see on SchoolSpring.com is a lot of charter/private openings--it is mostly an Eastern web covering you..k12jobspot.com does the midwest and most openings are public..California is on both..

    I don't see CC going away in Illinois..Teachers are upset at the curve used for Evaluations, but frankly some of them are terrible who advised not to be put on tenure..

    no spark, no psyche, not prepared, no diversity, ****ty body language, I feel sorry for the kids that have those teachers..it makes it hard to defend their asses on this board, but I do it .

    It's nothing more than the extension of lefitist revisionism.

    First used by the Bolsheviks and became standard operating procedure by Joseph Stalin and picked up by Communist Party USA.
    When the "New Left" (todays liberals and progressives) split off from CPUSA during the 1950's they used our schools and colleges and universities to inordinate young opened minded kids by rewriting just not history to further their socialist agenda but also the English language.

    Yeah, you're such an expert you falsely claimed that most conservative states had rejected CC (the truth is only two have) and the CC requires measuring childrens social skills and emotional status.

    Again, the only argument you seem to have is "nuh-uh"

    Because we're stuck with them..CC may be the only chance we have in a decade to making them better teachers..CC allows for the eventual dismissal of a teacher, so he will improve or else..

    We can't leave behind any teachers based on the current system, whether you like it or not..
    You choose to clip just this one phrase and let the context go..

    The rest of my comments on this thread have been with 38 years of experience behind them, after being a "strict" "college-prep" high school teacher..

    Kids remember their great teachers, but they also remember the ones who hurt them for college and the ones who have a bad attitude..We must change the bad by helping them .

    Bah. You can't teach passion. Teachers who hate their jobs aren't going to turn into great teachers just because of strict evaluation standards.

    Josie, do you remember the beginnings of the accountability movement? It had an especially conservative angle, but it did become rather bi-partisan, eventually. There were antecedents during the 1950s and 1960s as a result of the Cold War, but the strength didn't really kick in until the 1980s. That was also due to domestic concerns rather than foreign policy concerns. Then you had Goals 2000 and a number of attempts to reform curriculum.

    What I noticed was that at times conservatives liked standards and accountability measures, whereas at other points they do not. When I saw this I immediately thought of 1994.
