First off, placing that many students into one room is asinine. That's the district's fault for doing that. My college professor told us the other night, that there is studies out there showing that having a classroom of more than 20 shows significant dropoff of test scores and comprehension.

The other thing on college prep. One of the big things with the Common Core, is that it pushes heavily College and Career Readiness.
The whole thing is making sure that our youth will grow up not knowing just the basics of school, but knowing everything they need to know to get into college, thus making college easier in the first year.
Also making sure that if they enter the workforce right out of school, that they know what they need to know to succeed there.

The Common Core is not the Government getting involved too much in your child's education. It's actually the best thing out there to help finally educate them.

Are you arguing against my points which are identical to yours or are you just rewording my previous points?
User avatar #149 - psydoc (09/25/2013) [-]
You seem to believe there were no standards before the federal government came up with the "Common Core". Weren't there already standards, many of which were already higher than the standards set by Common Core?
#156 - cookiedude (09/25/2013) [-]
Like I said above, the standards weren't "common" in every school district let alone every state.
Also most of the standards were ambiguous in detail, and offered very little fine detail in what they wanted.

Something along the lines of "proficiency in using context clues," rather than
Craft and Structure
Grade 3
4. Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, distinguishing literal from nonliteral language. (RL.3.4)
Grade 4
4. Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including those that allude to significant characters found in mythology (e.g., Herculean). RL.4.4)
Grade 5
4. Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes. (RL.5.4)



That's Anchor standard 4 as it progresses from Grade 3 to grade 5.
Do you see the difference? Two teachers have very different opinions on proficiency, and you can see how this will make it clearer to every teacher and admin. on what their goals are.
Also I should mention that that is just for reading standards of literature. This doesn't include nonfiction or informational text, nor does it include literacy, language, different styles of writing, or any other subject.
User avatar #162 - psydoc (09/25/2013) [-]
But then textbooks and materials are written according to the standards, so it's not really such a matter of how each individual teacher interprets the standards unless they're totally going off on their own. In that case, I don't see how a common core will change things. Also, if another district or state has better standards, then why not let them use their own standards?
#167 - cookiedude (09/25/2013) [-]
One of my college professors told me this the other day.

"The best teachers use a text book as a reference guide for the primary sources they can use in class."

In other words, textbooks are great summarizers of knowledge, but a teacher should never teach the text. They should get other resources alongside the books their school provides.

The problem is, every school district believes that the formula they use is the best, and states usually side with the bigger schools and bigger cities. Now with everyone using the same thing, then they will know what is achievable and what isn't. And they can't say that their's is the best when everyone's is the same.
User avatar #176 - psydoc (09/25/2013) [-]
"a teacher should never teach the text. They should get other resources alongside the books their school provides."

That seems like an argument against the common core to me.

"states usually side with the bigger schools and bigger cities."

This also seems like an argument against the common core to me.

"Now with everyone using the same thing, then they will know what is achievable and what isn't."

I don't see how this is the case. It seems like trying different approaches and seeing what works would really show us what is achievable. Having one approach seems like saying we should have experiments with two controls and no experimental group.

"And they can't say that their's is the best when everyone's is the same. "

That's for sure. And I think that's the real purpose of the Common Core.
#189 - cookiedude (09/25/2013) [-]
Different demographics all utilizing the same thing will tell us if this works as a whole.

If in three years the states that adopted the CCSS and implemented it in 2011 see fall off in scores, then sure maybe the Common Core failed, but what if it succeeds and the graduates of 2017 are record setting text scorers?

I've said it again the teachers not teaching word for word the text book is good. The Common Core doesn't say you should or shouldn't do that. They say that it's up to the teacher to determine how and when they should teach a specific topic.
User avatar #221 - psydoc (09/25/2013) [-]
You have a point - using the same curriculum in different demographics will provide useful comparisons. However it hardly seems necessary to implement the changes nationwide to prove whether it works or not.

Also, what if some of the lower scores go up, while some of the higher scores go down, with a net slight increase? I imagine it will be heralded as a success, while some people who were paying extra to be in "better schools" are now not getting what they paid for. Honestly I think the real motivation behind common core is an attempt to equalize outcomes. I would think that if the feds came up with some really good ideas, and proved them through experimentation, then you wouldn't need a law to implement them across the country.
#223 - cookiedude (09/25/2013) [-]
The States chose to implement the Common Core. The feds pushed them into doing it back in 2009 by offering the states grant money, but it was still the states and territories deciding if they should do it.

In other words in one state had chosen we wouldn't be talking about this, but since 90% of them did...here we are.
User avatar #235 - psydoc (09/25/2013) [-]
Yet, in medicine, pharmaceutical companies can't pay doctors who prescribe their medicine (even if it is proven effective). Again my mind isn't made up about the Common Core, but the way education is run is substandard compared to science or medicine.
User avatar #256 - psydoc (09/25/2013) [-]
I guess what bothers me the most is that in 10 years we'll still be arguing about whether or not Common Core works no matter what the evidence shows. I wish education was guided by the results of unbiased studies.

I used to work for a big box store, and we would constantly have new programs (which was stupid because we had proven "best practices", which actually worked if followed), and nothing important ever really changed. They would instruct us to be "agents of change", and I would joking say that I'm so pro-change that I'll also be willing to change back when we drop this program (which almost always happened). No "new program" was ever evaluated for its effectiveness. No standards for success or failure were ever set up in advance. We'd just try new things because someone wanted to be able to put on their application that they changed something.

I wish that for every government program we just focused on what standards we're going to use to determine if it's a failure (thus automatically dump it) rather than the details of how it will supposedly work. Then I don't think we'd have to argue about much. If you told me that we were going to start keeping snakes in ever school classroom, and if it didn't raise test scores by 5%, then we'd give up the program, I'd have a hard time arguing against trying it out.

I'm sorry all I saw there was some anti-israeli rhetoric.

War is War. Israel won. If the Palestinians won they'd have murdered every single man woman and child in Israel and if you deny they you're ignoring a great deal of data on the issue. Now you can keep telling me that Israel drinks the blood of baby Palestinians 'til you're blue in the face but that's not a progressive strategy to fixing the region nor is it convincing me to decide that we should commit a genocide of Israelis as I presume you'd prefer since you've literally presented no other alternative.

Here I thought you were a moderate. So much hate man. So much hate.

Are you implying that I'd rather kill a bunch of Israeli babies and women instead of murdering the zionist leaders of the country? That's my alternative. We could just kill the people who embrace the war and wield weapons against powerless civilians. War implies two countries fighting. The way I see it, Gaza is not recognized as a country and has no military. Therefore, Israel is going against a defenseless region home to thousands of families.

Calling it a genocide is a bit extreme. Israelis aren't trying to wipe out the palestinians... they're just engaging the palestinians like a proper military when the palestinians don't have much of a military.

I'm not saying Israel is squeaky clean, but by the same token you cannot deny that they have a right to a state just as much as the palestinians
User avatar #384 - alltimetens (09/25/2013) [-]
Israel cut off their internet, killed thousands of people and a majority of the deaths were women and children, and injured thousands more. Is that not genocide?

If China killed even one American on American soil, it's a murder. But when an Israeli soldier goes into that little strip of land and murders 20 people, it's just Israel enforcing its laws or whatever. I disagree with you in every possible way. I have friends who were there on the front lines of the conflicts. My friend told me that you could not even go to the mosque for Friday prayers without fearing an Israeli bombing. He saw houses being destroyed and people running for their lives. He saw children screaming over the bodies of their deceased parents, and parents mourning over the bodies of their dead children. Are these not acts of terror? Are these not human beings who deserve to live and be happy?

Having a "fight to the state" does not by any means allow Israel to go on with war crimes.

Your question remains unanswered because it completely ignores the fact that Israel being established is the reason why rockets were fired. Israel did not "leave out of good will".

That's the exact same problem with the Europeans and the Native Americans.

Gotta be more specific. Here, I'll give you some context.

You pull out every Israeli from the Gaza strip in 2004. No presense at all, no checkpoints, no wall.

From 2004 - 2008 rockets are launched daily from Gaza unprovoked. How do you deal with this situation?
User avatar #304 - alltimetens (09/23/2013) [-]
You have to realize that Israel came into Gaza without permission. It's like someone coming into your home and then saying that you cannot come into the bathroom, the kitchen, or the bedroom because they now own half of your house.

My point is that the religious extremists outside of Islam aren't documented to be nearly as violent as the extremists within Islam. If the same trend was seen elsewhere I'd point it out too, but there is no other trend quite like it.

You also have to take into consideration the biased views of the media. Less than a year ago, there were two major incidents with white Americans who have committed heinous crimes, each involving the deaths of 12-20 something people. Also, the statistics dictate that Muslims and Arabs only add up to approximately 6% of the crimes in the U.S. Is it only terrorism when a Muslim commits it? There have been far more records of black and hispanic violence than Arab/Muslim violence. You have to also take into consideration your own personal definition of terrorism. My definition of terrorism is an act that inflicts terror on innocent civilians.

Actually, most Middle Eastern countries are strict in terms of staying neutral. I'm certain that if the relationship between the Middle Eastern countries was just as you described, Israel would have already been wiped off the map. From what I've read, Israel seems to be the douchebag of the confliction.

The truth is, there are extremists in every aspect of groups. Whether it's atheism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, etc. Most people tend to focus on Islamic extremists, despite there being very few. And when I say very few, I mean like 0.01% of the Islamic population.

Well to be fair I can only speak on behalf of Christianity and Judaism. Both had different approaches to science, Judaism was a lot better about it. At first they were as bad to gays as christians had been, but as time progressed Jews started to see the science and looked to their bible to see if there was some new way to read it alongside science instead of against science. That's all I'd ever ask from Christians.

About Islam though. How do you explain the fact that in Islamic countries where Shariah Law is in place they will give you the death penalty or a forced sex change if you are gay?
User avatar #191 - alltimetens (09/23/2013) [-]

www.funnyjunk.com/religion/54159#54159

new atheism =/= atheism

new atheism mean you shall be a total asshole against religion no matter how logical the answer is given

the board is full of heretics and you shall take care

Might be an odd thing to say, but you might want to join Tumblr. A lot of us are actually males who enjoy certain fandoms and have deep discussions about them, especially with Yu Yu Hakusho.

Might I suggest Kill La Kill or HunterXHunter? The latter apparently takes place in the future of Yu Yu Hakusho. Of course, Inuyasha is said to take place in the past, with Kikyo being Raizen's original daughter.

Damn... I better get watching.
User avatar #148 to #147 - zafara (04/07/2014) [-]
Go for Inuyasha first. I feel like Yu Yu Hakusho took a lot from that show. "Ooohhh we're losing viewers during the Dark Tournament, better show them Kurama's true form!" Fricken love child of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha (Which given Sesshomaru's mother isn't entirely out of the question even though they are a different species). Also, character types for both Toguro brothers, Bui, Karasu, and others were in that show.

By the way, there is a user named Toguro here, but they aren't named after this Toguro.

You like telling everyone that don'tcha?
User avatar #151 to #150 - zafara (04/17/2014) [-]
Well, we were talking about Toguro anyway. You usually pop up whenever Toguro is mentioned, so I wanted to let him know that you would probably show up. I also wanted to warn him that you don't really watch the show and named yourself Toguro after something else so that they didn't ask you questions about Yu Yu Hakusho you don't know.

Basically, I wanted to save some time by warning him that while you have the name, you don't know the show.

You know what I'm trying to say?
