Common Core rebellion: Thousands of HS students walk out over test

Two New Mexico high school students who organized what became thousands of kids to walk out of class this week appeared on national TV Thursday to explain why they did it — and describe the ugly reality that is Common Core.

Students across the country are required to take an annual Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC test, which is aligned with Common Core standards. For students in New Mexico, scoring on PARCC exams determine 50 percent of their grade.

The tests “don’t encompass the learning styles of many different other students and that kind of leaves people out,” Guiney added.

He predicted that if all schools switch to the Common Core teaching style the PARCC tests are geared to, “some students are going to stop going to school.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The tests are not about education, and critical thinking; they are about indoctrination, and having a work force incapable of thinking for itself, which is the agenda nearest and dearest to the heart of the US Federal Government and Department of Education.

I know a number of small independent schools here in Hawaii who are not teaching Common Core standards, and it is their kids who have the best chances at being accepted at the college of their choice, finishing well, and doing well in life.
