The Superintendent of the Findlay City School District talked about Common Core Monday. The Courier reports Ed Kurt told the Findlay Rotary Club he’s not against Common Core standards but does have an issue with the amount of testing. During his presentation, Kurt said the amount of testing is a threat to student creativity.
There’s also an issue of timing. The results of the recent PARCC testing and another test in the spring won’t be available until next fall. Kurt said that’s a problem because students have moved onto different teachers by then.
Kurt did say he thinks there are some positives to Common Core. For instance, he thinks having national standards is a good thing.
