    I could not agree more strongly! The “cookie cutter” may have changed shapes, but to force ever more children through it is a mistake. American public education has failed to spark the inquizative imagination of our children… partly because of PC sociatal issues (including a prevasive entitlement mentality) and partly because of litigation fears. Those failings won’t be corrected by the common core standards.

    Obviously, our students must be better educated. We can’t be graduating students who can barely read. But beyond that… we need to acknowledge the whole child… and inspire them to reach for the stars.
