Life’s a carnival

Life’s a Carnival at Bellringers, which has Education Buzz #2 up and running.

Diana Senechal, who helped write the Common Core Standards, doesn’t want states forced to adopt them in the scramble for Race to the Top funds.

Notes From A Homeschooling Mom is hosting the Back 2 Home edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling.

  1. Diana Senechal says:

    Thanks for the mention, Joanne! My contribution to the Common Core standards was minor and brief, but it was a great experience. And yes, I have strong misgivings about putting pressure on states to adopt them (through Race to the Top)–not because the standards themselves are lacking, but because they require thoughtful implementation and excellent curricula.
