Bored with the Common Core controversy? You’re in for a long few years. Education Week reports yesterday on initial feedback to a set of publisher’s guidelines for math materials. And--surprise, surprise--some people like it: “I think it's exactly what we need,” says Diana Kasbaum, president of the Association of State Supervisors of Mathematics. And, some don’t: "The process really bothers me," says Robert Calfee, a professor emeritus at Stanford University's school of education. The Washington Post reblogged a good primer on how the implementation of these standards will change they way schools test, for better or worse. Be careful how you talk about it in Utah, though. Opinion pieces regarding Common Core conspiracies are entertaining to say the least. —Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director
