Deputatul mi-a răspuns

Am scris un email deputatului care reprezintă districtul in care locuiesc privind Standardele educationale. Acesta ii este răspunsul. Pe scurt, nu va face nimic ca sa le anuleze. Trist.

Dear Cristina,

Thank you for contacting my office in regards to Common Core Curriculum implementation in Michigan. I appreciate the time you have taken to express your thoughts on this matter.

To reflect, the Common Core Curriculum (CCC) is a project developed by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers, not the federal government. The interpretation of the CCC as a federal take-over is completely misunderstood; there is no nationalization of education pushed by the federal government. A group of states came together to build a standard that was comparable to the rest of the world, with little benefits from the federal government. Some states have received Race to Top funds in correspondence with their implemented Common Core Standards, while other states have applied for grant help.

Michigan’s State Board of Education approved common core standards in June 2010. To be clear, Michigan did not receive any Race to Top funds from the federal government, and the Common Core Curriculum in Michigan was structured by professionals within the state. Prior to the acceptance of CCC by the Department of Education, Michigan’s curriculum was already in line with standards proposed by the Governor’s Association.

Michigan is 1 of 43 states that have Common Core Standards, and each state has their own system of standards proposed by their Department of Education, keeping the power within the state and not with the federal government.

Sincerely,

John Walsh
State Representative
19th District
