Interesting Article—Common Core

I don’t usually repost articles, but this one sums up what I think! Myra Blackmon’s article makes me certain in my conviction to homeschool. Yes, I teach high school Spanish, but I HAVE homeschooled my two girls at different times throughout the years. I have never regretted the decision. Our educational system needs a hard look, but there is no easy fix for the mess we now have. I am thankful that my state has NOT adopted Common Core, but many states have. After seeing some of the activities from the books used, I am not impressed.
