Today, we heard from the New York State Education Department that, due to the new Common Core –aligned tests, student scores have dropped.
To us, this makes a lot of sense. Why?
Because as Jonah Edelman, Stand’s CEO and Co-Founder, explains, “We haven’t been honest with our kids and families. Students need to be on track, not just be told they’re on track. The assessments based on previous standards were not accurate indicators of college and career-readiness.”
