SHARED KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. KEEP IT GROWING!

A COUPLE OF NOTES FROM KAREN:

AND A NOTE TO ALL COMMON CORE CHART READERS-–if and when you share this please don’t forget the amendments made to the original after it was published -they are needed to be most accurate and up to date! Click here for the transcript which includes additions and changes.

Corrections: The Council of Chief State School Officers director is no longer Tom Luna; it is now Chris Minnich, who used to work for Pearson. The former Gates employee, Sharren Bates, works for inBloom, not Wireless, as the chief product officer, and Connections Academy Mickey Revenaugh is no longer the ALEC education committee  co-chair. But she was when the chart was originally started in 2011.

    Hello, I gave this flowchart to a woman who made a public presentation to our community and she said at the presentation that the chart had to do with something back East, as if it did not pertain to our state (Idaho). Isn’t this pretty much a chart that shows organizations behind Common Core as it pertains to the national standards and hence pertains to all states that signed on? Tom Luna is coming to our part of the world soon and I’d like to ask him some questions using this chart.

    • Yes these are national connection though some
      Pieces of it may affect different states differently
      For example not all states have contracts with wireless generation and FL may now be pulling out of PARCC-things can change quickly
      But Tge corporate interests and general connections remain
