"THE COMMON CORE"
(unofficial title by me)
"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." ~ Albert Einstein
I love various mediums of art. This work of art was submitted by the Jackson County School District (Jackson County, MS) for the Central High School Art Project in 1998. None of the art had official titles. Only the name, city, and state of the school district were displayed on a wall plaque next to each exhibit.
For those of you who may not know, "Common Core" is In short, not a curriculum but a set of standards defining the knowledge and skills that students from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade need to master each year to be prepared for the next grade, and ultimately college or work. Creating common academic standards across the country was a state-led initiative, involving a coalition of governors and educators. The actual standards were developed by teachers, administrators, experts and parents. Also, both of my parents and an aunt (my mother's youngest sister) are "happily and actively retired educators."
