Common Core curriculum and tests in NY: My response NYPost
Those who are on the front lines of the education system in this city have known all along that our children have been failing miserably for quite some time (“Spotlight on Failure,” Editorial, April 21).
The histrionics coming from the teachers’ union regarding testing is no more than a massive coverup of its own poor performance.
One would imagine that after finding out that our children rank so poorly among other nations in math and science, someone might care. This is not so in New York, where teachers only care about perks and pensions, not kids.
