C-SPAN Airs Launch of Drilling Through The Core

Oct 20, 2015 | 

NAS

NAS President Peter Wood and NAS Board Member Sandra Stotsky appeared September 28 at the National Press Club on C-SPAN's recording of the panel discussion that marked the Pioneer Institute's launch of Drilling Through the Core: Why Common Core is Bad for American Education, which was edited by Peter Wood.

In his introduction, Peter Wood summarized NAS's concern about the Common Core: that while it purports to make students college ready, "it's a false advertisement, it doesn't do that, it lowers standards." Sandra Stotsky spoke later on the Common Core's content-free English standards, which focus almost completely on reading skills without tying them to literary or historical knowledge.

Other panel members included Williamson Evers, James Milgram, and Ze’ev Wurman.
