An open challenge to Common Core's drive for uniformity

Nicholas Tampio watched as his kindergartner's class shifted from one where teachers, aides, parents, and students worked hard to create a rewarding educational experience to one in which teachers delivered hours-long lectures using packaged lesson plans. Learning versus the Common Core explains how standards-based education reform is transforming nearly every aspect of public education by looking closely at the standards, the agenda of people pushing standards-based reform, and how these fit within a global pattern of education reform. With a nod to the philosophy of John Dewey, Tampio concludes with a vision of what democratic education can look like today-and how people can form rhizomatic alliances across different political and ethical backgrounds to fight the Common Core.
