I’m sorry.  It is a work in progress.  It appears nothing has been published yet.  Well, at least I can now point to recent publications showing exactly how it  does not work… So you can at least be ready,…. whenever some type of proof espousing the benefits of Common Core ever gets put to ink…..

  1.  Incentives and Test-Based Accountability in Education  Hout and Elliott (2011)
  2. Twenty Years after Education Reform  French, Guisbond, and Jehlen (2013)
  3. How Well Are American Students Learning  Loveless (2012)
  4. Mathis (2012)  Existence and/or quality of standards not positively correlated with NAEP
  5. Don’t Forget Curriculum  Whitehurst (2009)
  6. Debunking the Case for National Standards  Kohn (2010)
  7. Mapping State Proficiency Standards Onto NAEP Scales: 2005-2007  Victor Bandeira de Mello, Charles Blankenship, Don McLaughlin (2009)
  8. Horn (2013)  2012 NAEP Long-Term Trends are out
  9. Productivity Research, the U.S. Department of Education, and High-Quality Evidence.  Baker, B.D. & Welner, K.G. (2011)
  10. Evidence and Rigor  Bruce Baker and Kevin G. Welner
  11. Whatever Happened to Scientifically Based Research in Education Policy?   P. L. Thomas

(This list was compiled and came out last summer;  I missed it back then, and have come to it lately….)

So it appears that all research on Common Core is a bit one sided.  Can someone tell me again, why we inflict this on our kids before we know what it does?

Frederica Jenner.  I’m directly asking you.
