Good News! We Can Cancel The Common Core Tests | The Huffington Post

When trying to figure out why public policy becomes public policy . . . it’s always best to follow the money – Common Core Tests are Big Money and they don’t really tell us much we don’t already know.

 

Tienken and his team used just three pieces of demographic data—

1) percentage of families in the community with income over $200K

2) percentage of people in the community in poverty

3) percentage of people in community with bachelor’s degreesUsing that data alone, Tienken was able to predict school district test results accurately in most cases. In New Jersey 300 or so middle schools, the team could predict middle school math and language arts test scores for well over two thirds of the schools.
