Why I think the PARCC (the Common Core standardized test) is an impending disaster

They are going to have around 100 schools logging on at the same time in New Jersey alone. Most of these schools are quite big, with 300+ students. The likelihood that their servers are strong enough to handle that is low. The testing website is going to get accidentally DDOSSed, and everyone is going to fail because they couldn't finish within the time limits even though it's not our fault.

note, the likelihood of this actually happening is not as high as projected.

Common core is a scam that idiots fell for. In the words of our elders, it's "the blind leading the blind"

Common Core is a shitbag overall. It's bound to fail. Thank god I get to see the flames and fumes rather than participate in the laughingstock.

I don't care who wrote it, I care about what was written.

If there are problems, they'll fix it. The makers and instituters of those tests have a steady funding stream from the public sector. And they are counting on the "sunk cost" theory -- we won't pull out of the Common Core cuz we've invested so much money in it. If it isn't working, we'll HAVE to pour more in it, just to prove the money spent so far wasn't a waste of taxpayer dollars. You can take it to the bank...if it's not working, they'll fix it.

Unless we stop them.

Common Core has already been an incredible success. It's only design is to make a small number of people very rich and it has certainly done that.

Has it failed as a useful educational assessment?

No. Because that has never been the goal of its creators.

I never tried to build a ship. You wouldn't call me a failed ship builder, would you?

If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.

Some states got smart and realized how big a scam it was.

Right now all fifty states have some kind of scam running. If it's not CC it's something similar. Some schools and districts have opted out or refused as an act of civil disobedience.
