AUNE Faculty Member Defends Common Core in Education Week

Our colleague, Antioch University New England faculty member Laura Thomas, recently published an article in Education Week entitled, “The ‘Monster’ at the End of the Common Core.

This is a very thought-provoking piece that we found to be exceptionally relevant to current educational practice. Thomas highlights the importance of the Common Core, claiming that progressive educators have become so accustomed to the burden of instructional mandates that they may be missing opportunities presented by the common standards.
