Cover Stories:

What’s Wrong with the Common Core

Hailed as the next great reform, the Common Core State Standards are being implemented at breakneck speed in districts across the United States. In this issue’s special section, we delve more deeply into the roots, problems, and trajectory of the Common Core.

The Problems with the Common Core
By Stan Karp

The rollout of the Common Core has seemed more like a marketing campaign than an educational plan. A look at the funders, origins, and uses of the new standards shows why the pushback is building.

Martin Luther King Jr. and the Common Core: A critical reading of “close reading”
By Daniel E. Ferguson

The chief architect of the Common Core created a model lesson of a “close reading” of King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” A teacher from Birmingham compares that to King’s own critical reading of the “word” and the “world.”

Sex Talk on the Carpet: Incorporating gender and sexuality into 5th-grade curriculum
By Valdine Ciwko

Instead of leaving “the puberty talk” to the nurse, an elementary teacher incorporates age-appropriate discussion into her regular classroom routine.

Note to our readers: Beginning with this issue, at least one of our articles will be available in Spanish as well as English.
Rethinking Schools is a must-read for everyone involved in progressive education -- first-year teachers and seasoned veterans, parents and community activists. Crammed with innovative teaching ideas, compelling resources, analyses of important issues, and organizing, Rethinking Schools is an invaluable source for educators who want to enlist students in thinking deeply and critically about the world today. As education policy increasingly forces schools toward scripted curriculum, excessive testing, and punitive measures, Rethinking Schools provides an alternative vision of schooling, based on the creative commitment of teachers and grounded in students’ daily lives. A wide range of articles portrays classrooms that are academically rigorous, ant-racist, multicultural, and engaging. Rethinking Schools offers hope and inspiration by being both practical and visionary.
