Common Core Standards

  • Boom Island Boom Room 2014 N Washington Ave #300 Minneapolis, MN 55411 USA (map)

After fourteen years of the much-loathed curriculum standards that were No Child Left Behind, a new set of guidelines has been introduced with the intention to measure students' progress while giving teachers and schools the freedom to develop their own curriculums and lessons.

Parents lambast it, teachers don't notice the difference, and–for the most part–none of us even know what it is. The content for this gathering is a 40-minute documentary, chosen by Anna Tucker, with an unbiased view of what the hell exactly the Common Core State Standards are, and why (if at all) they affect our lives, or the lives of our kids.
