Utah Core Standards Are Working and Should Not Be Abandoned
Utah teachers, parents and taxpayers have made significant investments in Common Core Standards over the past six years, and the state is already reaping the returns on this investment, writes Nathan Auck, a math specialist. The Utah Council of Teachers of Mathematics issued a resolution supporting the Utah Core Standards earlier this year. Conversely, states that have replaced the Common Core are experiencing the realities of inferior education standards. “Well thought-out and thoroughly vetted state educational standards, and the hard work that goes into their implementation, should not be subject to the whims of election year politics and political jockeying,” Auck concludes.
