CCSSO Pres. Atkinson Calls Standards Copyright Questions “Preposterous”

Asking questions about a set of copyrighted standards is “preposterous“, ya’ll.
So sayeth the President of the CCSSO.

The Public License is clear and it is also clear North Carolina is not supporting the Common Core Standards — we’re trying to replace them:

“The NGA Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) hereby grant a limited, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to copy, publish, distribute, and display the Common Core State Standards for purposes that support the Common Core State Standards Initiative. These uses may involve the Common Core State Standards as a whole or selected excerpts or portions.”

If all of this concern over leaving the state of North Carolina open to a lawsuit is so “preposterous”, then why not just give North Carolina a waiver, Dr. Atkinson?

No term or provision of this License shall be deemed waived and no breach consented to unless such waiver or consent shall be in writing and signed by authorized representatives of NGA Center and CCSSO.

The Public License states:

AtkinsonPresElect“No term or provision of this License shall be deemed waived and no breach consented to unless such waiver or consent shall be in writing and signed by authorized representatives of NGA Center and CCSSO.”

 

 

The CCSSO is one of the holders of the Common Core Copyright. Dr. Atkinson is the President of the CCSSO, right? So what’s the hold up? Get rid of any controversy and give North Carolina a waiver.

For those who want to read about this in more detail, I  covered the debate on the copyright in the meeting on Friday pretty thoroughly in my article, 1-16-15 NC Common Core Commission Meeting.

Look at that, already an update:
