Re: “NYSUT sues state over Common Core tests

They cannot release test questions due to "test security ".
Which means students cannot view their tests to see where they went wrong. Which means students cannot learn a single thing from these tests. And as a parent- you have no idea where your student is string and where they are weak. Remember when you brought your tests home and your parents sat down at the dining room table and went over it with you ? Remember that. "Aha " moment when you realized what you'd done wrong- and how to do it right?
Those days are gone. No viewing the test. No learning from your mistakes. No ability for parents to participate and help their kids. God help am education system that completely removes parents playing a role in teaching their kids. The disregard for the benefit of involved parents is nothing short of mind blowing.
I love how common core boasts that the system will now equalize education "regardless of the zip code". At least on this front common core pushers actually are telling the truth: Now every child, regardless of where they live, is left to their own devices. Now NO child has the benefit of involved parents.

Re: “NYSUT sues state over Common Core tests

The official claim of common core is that the purpose of this massive testing is so that teachers, parents and students can see where students are falling short and get immediate intervention where needed. But the tests cannot be seen ? Then what in the world is the purpose of the test? I would really like to know the answer to that question.
