A Teacher Tells Tales from the Common Core Front Line
Barry Garelick has written Part One in a continuing series on what today’s educational landscape is like in the trenches: the classroom.

You can read the entire post Conversations on the Rifle Range, I: Not your Mother’s Algebra I and the Guy Who Really Knows.
I can’t wait to see Part Two. After you read Barry’s first posting, “what guy” do you think really knows what’s going on in Common Core? And what’s your take on “Sally”? A question for the teachers reading this article: do you have similar administrators in your building?
