The Wall Street Journal recently ran a piece by Marina Ratner about Math and the Common Core. Dr. Bill McCallum notes that many of the assertions are false, noting, “it’s not so much a matter of fact checking as checking to see if there are any facts. For example, of the three quotations she gives from the standards, two are not to be found anywhere in the document. (Read it.) In my mathematics classes, 33% is not a passing grade.”
