Common Core Commission won’t even consider MN Math, Yet DPI Contracts with WI on ELA – #ASRC

Jeffrey Isenhour was the member of the NC Common Core commission who was most viciously going after Dr. Ted Scheik on the math group’s recommendations.

Isenhour ridiculed, scrutinized and picked at Scheik until Scheik, an elderly gentleman, relented and changed his recommendation’s language. Isenhour then led the charge to vote down the changes that he himself just insisted on.

One of Isenhour’s biggest claims was that North Carolina shouldn’t be adopting a set of standards “wholesale” from another state without thorough vetting.

Let’s deconstruct him a bit, shall we?

“I was embarrassed and ashamed for the way Dr. Scheick was being treated” – #ASRC

Some spectators at the final NC Common Core Commission meeting took notice when commission member Jeannie Metcalf got up, walked out and did not return.

NC Media Quote ‘Just A Teacher’ After Common Core Meeting – #ASRC

Folks in North Carolina know how Google challenged our media are. Friday’s reporting on the NC Common Core Commission was no exception.

Several outlets cited ‘Teacher Amanda Garrison’ as relieved that Common Core was ‘saved’ and at least one had video of her inaccurately disparaging the Minnesota math standards.

Quote from WNCN:

“It’s not been proven to be any better than what Common Core has to offer,” said Amanda Garrison, a Burke County teacher. “ I am a Common core advocate so I will say that I am against changing our standards for K-8.”

Dear Ms. Garrison, actually yeah – Minnesota does have proof – their test scores.

NC Media Confused By Common Core Commission Antics – #ASRC

As I had predicted, the majority of major North Carolina news media outlets showed up to the final meeting of the NC Common Core Commission meeting on Friday.

I had a chance to speak with a number of them off camera and several of them were confused about how the Commission could vote down the math recommendations when for months they had unanimously said the Common Core math was fatally flawed.

Here are links to the articles from each outlet so far:

Common Core Commission Blasted By Citizen After Final Meeting – #ASRC

As I wrote earlier, the NC Academic Standards Review Commission cannibalized one of their own in yesterday’s final meeting.

One citizen fired off a letter to the commission, sarcastically blasting them for the turn of events that took place.

Here’s the letter:
