The Education Invasion

How Common Core Fights Parents for Control of American Kids

Most Americans had no idea what Common Core was in 2013, according to polls. But it had been creeping into schools nationwide over the previous three years, and children were feeling its effects. They cried over math homework so mystifying their parents could not help them, even in elementary school. They read motley assortments of “informational text” instead of classic literature. They dreaded the high-stakes tests, in unfamiliar formats, that were increasingly controlling their classrooms. How did this latest and most sweeping “reform” of American education come in mostly under the radar? Joy Pullmann started tugging on a thread of reports from worried parents and frustrated teachers, and it led to a big tangle of history and politics, intrigue and arrogance. She unwound it to discover how a cabal of private foundation honchos and unelected public officials cooked up a set of rules for what American children must learn in core K–12 classes, and how the Obama administration pressured states to adopt them. Thus a federalized education scheme took root, despite legal prohibitions against federal involvement in curriculum. Common Core and its testing regime were touted as “an absolute game-changer in public education,” yet the evidence so far suggests that kids are actually learning less under it. Why, then, was such a costly and disruptive agenda imposed on the nation’s schools? Who benefits? And how can citizens regain local self-governance in education, so their children’s minds will be fed a more nourishing intellectual diet and be protected from the experiments of emboldened bureaucrats? The Education Invasion offers answers and remedies.

How can the Common Core complement and not conflict with school improvement efforts already at work across the United States? How can it be seamlessly integrated into accountability systems, teacher preparation and development, charter schools, and educational technology? This timely volume brings together prominent scholars and policy analysts to examine the pressing issues that will mark Common Core implementation. Whether or not you agree with the standards, the Common Core is coming, and this book will help policymakers, practitioners, and other stakeholders anticipate the challenges and take steps to address them. “Common Core Meets Education Reform raises the hard questions about implementing and sustaining the Common Core State Standards so they don’t end up in the dustbin of abandoned public education reforms. These new standards can help students enormously in becoming problem solvers and critical thinkers—which is essential in the 21st century—but only if teachers become engaged in the rollout, get the support they need, and the fixation on high-stakes testing gives way to a fixation on learning.” —Randi Weingarten, president, American Federation of Teachers “Adopting the Common Core in a mad dash for federal gold, policymakers across the country blew right past critical questions about how they’d implement the thing. This volume, in stark contrast, meticulously studies the road ahead, seeking out tripwires, pitfalls, and boulders, making it a must-read for anyone who hopes to avoid total Common Core disaster.” —Neal McCluskey, associate director, Center for Educational Freedom, Cato Institute, Washington, DC “This balanced, wide-ranging, and deeply informed book is certain to guide educators and reformers through a complex time of transition for U.S. education. But it also turns out to be timely and clarifying as politicians battle over ambitious new academic standards with plenty of heat and smoke but appallingly little illumination. Thanks to the authors for turning on some lights!” —Chester E. Finn, Jr., senior fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University and president, Thomas B. Fordham Institute Frederick M. Hess is director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and serves as executive editor of Education Next. Michael Q. McShane is a research fellow in education policy studies at AEI.

Ein zentraler Aspekt von Toughs Untersuchung sind die Zukunftschancen von Kindern aus der unteren Skala der Gesellschaft. Wenn wir die richtigen Eigenschaften fördern, kann die soziale Schere geschlossen werden. Psychologen, Neurowissenschaftler und Ökonomen, die sich mit der Frage von Erfolg und Persönlichkeit beschäftigen, belegen: Charaktereigenschaften wie Ausdauer, Optimismus, Neugier, Mut und Gewissenhaftigkeit sind ausschlaggebend für späteren Erfolg. Aber wie kann man diese Eigenschaften fördern? Und warum sind sie so sichere Vorhersagemerkmale? Tough zeigt am Beispiel einer Brennpunktschule, wie die Förderung benachteiligter Schüler gelingt. Dieses kluge und provokante Buch wird den Leser fesseln – und es wird unser Verständnis von Kindheit, Schule und Ausbildung verändern.

PISA 2012 steht für die fünfte Erhebungsrunde des Programme for International Student Assessment der OECD. Seit dem Jahr 2000 berichtet PISA alle drei Jahre über Stärken und Schwächen von Bildungssystemen. PISA untersucht vor allem, inwieweit es den teilnehmenden Staaten gelingt, die Schülerinnen und Schüler für ihre weiteren Bildungs- und Berufswege vorzubereiten. PISA testet das Wissen der fünfzehnjährigen Jugendlichen in den Bereichen Mathematik, Lesen und Naturwissenschaften. Der Vergleich über die bisherigen Erhebungsrunden gibt zudem Aufschluss über Veränderungen in der Qualität der Bildungsergebnisse. Der vorliegende nationale Berichtsband präsentiert die Ergebnisse, die von den Schülerinnen und Schülern in Deutschland in der aktuellen Vergleichsstudie erreicht wurden. Der Schwerpunkt der Erhebungen und Auswertungen liegt bei PISA 2012 auf der Mathematik, die nach PISA 2003 zum zweiten Mal im Zentrum der Untersuchung steht. Die Testergebnisse werden zusammen mit Befunden über Unterricht, Schulen und Merkmale der Elternhäuser diskutiert.

Als Julie ihn das erste Mal sieht, flippt sie aus. Und zwar total. Als Bryce sie das erste Mal sieht, haut er ab. Und zwar schnell. Das war damals, vor vielen Jahren, in der 2. Klasse. Julie liebt Bryce immer noch: seine blauen Augen. Seine schwarzen Haare. Und den blonden Flaum auf seinen Ohrläppchen. Bryce findet Julie immer noch, na ja, seltsam: ihre Hühnerzucht. Ihre Angewohnheit in Bäumen zu sitzen. Und ihre frontalen, finalen Angriffe. Immer noch sind sie Nachbarn. Immer noch gehen sie in die selbe Klasse. Und immer noch haben sie sich nicht geküsst. Ist Liebe eine Frage der Perspektive? Denn Julie fragt sich allmählich, ob seine Persönlichkeit wirklich so schön ist wie seine Augen. Und Bryce fragt sich allmählich, ob ihre Persönlichkeit nicht, na ja, irgendwie cool ist. "
