TN State School Board approved new standards in Math and ELA to be implemented in all TN schools during the 2017-2018 school year. Although our legislators told us they repealed Common Core (I knew they were deceitful from the git go but had to wait it out until I could actually prove it.) I am now going to show you the proof that we were again lied to and deceived. There were 8 TN legislators that voted to kill the bill that would have truly repealed Common Core but instead they chose to stand with the deceitful leadership team and against the children of Tennessee. Rep. Butt, Rep. Byrd, Rep. Love, Rep. Pitts, Rep. Dunn, Rep. Kane, Rep. Fogerty, Rep. Spivey. I also add Rep. Harry Brooks and Sen. Dolores Gresham to the mix. These 10 legislators need to be voted out of office. Below is the analysis I got back from Dr. Sandra Stotsky and Dr. James Milgram on the new TN ELA and Math standards. They were prepared to do a full blown analysis but very early into the process they found it was truly not necessary and would be a waste of their time. It was obvious to them, early on, what happened in TN.

Dr. Stotsky's comments on the new TN ELA standards
Dr. Peg Luksik explains why standards ARE the problem. Prior to 1992 we did not have standards in the United States. This is why we need to go back to the time when we didn't have standards.
Dr. Sandra Stotsky's analysis on each of the original Common Core ELA Standard. This analysis was done for a testimony in Florida but we all have the same standards so it applies to all states.
Dr. Sandra Stotsky makes available to all states the ELA Standards from MA for free. So when your legislator asks what are they to use in place of Common Core hand them this document. These standards are tested successful.
We also have another excellent set of ELA standards for FREE. These standards were truly created by educators and experts not DC bureaucrats.
