How about going back to the way teaching was done 20+ years ago and not teaching to a test but teaching math for math, english for english and science for science- to learn each one and not to be able to take a test to pass. You are not really teaching if you are just teaching the information so a child can pass an EOG. You should not dictate to the teacher the curriculum that needs to be taught. The teacher should be able to teach her students the material and the students learn from that material and take tests accordingly. We want to teach students to have a mind of their own and use the abilities they have to achieve goals that are set by them and their parents. The teachers provide them the information but it is not the responsibility to the teacher to hold their hands and shape the curriculum based on the fact that some students will not put forth as much effort as others. Provide each student with the opportunity and reward the students that take that opportunity and achieve the best. Common Core is a set of standards that didn't take into account the students that had not started with those standards and the students would already be considered "behind" with very little ability to catch up and progress in the manner that Common Core requires. It was an unrealistic and impractical standard that should have never been implemented.
