robertjayb, did you end up posting the article someplace, the one you tried to link above?

When I tried your link I didn't get a Common Core article, just random stuff about McClatchy. But the article below (if this is the same thing) is good, and specific -- and I got it by googling your link.

Our community is up in arms over Common Core lately, and I am going to email this link to a few people:


2758. robertjayb - 12/15/2013 2:31:22 AM

Yes, that is the article I could not link. Now, with hope overcoming experience once again, I'll try to link another, also from the LAtimes.


The article, "Can American Students get smart?," by Solomon Friedberg of Boston College, appeared this week.

The lead paragraph:

The latest international test scores of 15-year-olds are in, and the results are appalling. The Program for International Student Assessment, or PISA, found that the United States the most affluent country in the world failed to rank in the top 20 in any category. In math the subject most critical for careers in high-paying science, technology and engineering fields slightly more than a quarter of U.S. students scored below baseline proficiency

But we shouldn't have been surprised. This year's scores were comparable to results over the last decade...

Other countries dump the types of students we measure. Instead of being proud of our system--the most egalitarian in the history of the world--we wring our hands over the failure of our system, which is simply untrue. Compare top to top. That's all that matters in terms of international comparisons.

Okay, I was trying to see how to post a line in color...went to the "hints" link below and IT had a link...which, when you click on it, is broken.

What gives?

2764. wabbit - 8/15/2014 9:27:29 PM

I don't have access to the server anymore, so I can't change that link. The one in the sidebar works.

2765. judithathome - 8/16/2014 2:25:37 AM

I'm feeling a little green around the gills

2766. arkymalarky - 8/16/2014 5:37:13 PM

I'm green with envy!

Got it figured out! I just posted them on a Wix page instead and it works fine from there.
