Shall the Common Core Forge the New World Order?
The Common Core sometimes strikes me as a twenty-first century Cultural Revolution. I don't mean that in any positive sense. It sweeps in like a tsunami and takes out everything in its way. It seems to be a Kulturkampf with the potential to enrich some.
Out with the old and in with the new may be advantageous when a Communist state wishes to foist a new-world order on people or when a Capitalist system wishes to generate profits by foisting a must-sell product upon the market, but it won't do for education and its underlying foundations of diverse communities with different traditions.
