Veteran First-Grade Teacher Calls for Moratorium on Pre-K-2 Commom Core Standards

on October 19, 2016

It is so sad, what they have done to all of education. And now they are imposing these standards on our youngest children. Not just K-2, but even into pre-schools.
This is so wrong. Children need to play and explore. They learn and develop by playing and exploring.

Peter Rawitsch teaches first grade. He has been a teacher for 40 years. He was invited to participate in the New York State review of Common Core standards for the early grades.

He deliberated with the group and came away convinced that the standards, however written, will do more harm than good. In this article, he calls for a moratorium on standards for the youngest children.

He thinks that children need a childhood more than they need standards.
