it is kind of technical.

What Tennessee did was strip out everything not sanctioned as Common core by Dave Coleman….

This cut down the number of items on the test, therefore making it harder for students to meet proficiency requirements that have risen steadily year after year…

In plain speak, it is like a teacher gives you a 20 question quiz and you miss two…  Now  she gives you a three question quiz and you miss two…

Big difference….

Common Core ruined Tennessee’s education policy this year….  Delaware needs to get off Common Core as fast as possible.  I believe by the beginning of next school year, we will be the only state still on Common Core, if I’m not mistaken?

The only state on a program out of which all 49 other states will have bailed…

This legislative session we need to keep the DCAS for two more years…. It expired this May.  Simply change the year date and do not pass any legislation utilizing the Smarter Balanced assessments.
