As readers know, I am agnostic about the Common Core standards.

I want to see how they work in reality before supporting or opposing them. I know the case for both views.

However, I am troubled by the rush to force compliance without trial. I am concerned about shoddy implementation without preparation or resources. I am concerned about diversion of resources fro classroom. I am concerned that corporate interests are eagerly waiting for scores to fall so they can rush to sell stuff to schools or replace teachers with gadgets.
