IT’S TIME TO BE HONEST WITH AMERICAN STUDENTS.
We live in a different world today -- globally connected, technologically driven, fast paced-- and yet as a country, we haven't changed what our kids are studying or how they think in over thirty years, while other countries around the world have modernized their approach to education. It's time to ensure our kids have the skills they need to compete and thrive after graduating.
The Common Core State Standards are designed to ensure real understanding. The materials are designed to go deeper into fewer topics, so kids master the material instead of memorizing. At the same time, the learning is more hands-on with a focus on what students will use in life.
SO WHY ARE INDIANA LEGISLATORS TRYING TO HALT THE COMMON CORE?
The standards are good for kids and good for our state. Write your legislator today to tell them to stop legislating in the classroom and support Common Core.
