The Cure for the Common Core

In the national debate about the merits of the Common Core State Standards, little attention has been paid to what should be taught to meet these standards. The Common Core specifies some critical content, but many decisions are left up to the state and local levels.

On October 8, 2014 the Baltimore Curriculum Project and Loyola University Maryland’s School of Education hosted BCP’s 8th annual Leading Minds forum: The Cure for the Common Core.

The event featured a panel discussion on why teaching content knowledge is important; how to teach it; and the implications for the Common Core State Standards with:

  • Dr. Lisa Hansel, Director of Communications, Core Knowledge Foundation
  • Dr. Rachel Mazyck (moderator), President, Collegiate Directions
  • Robert Pondiscio, Senior Fellow and Vice President for External Affairs, Thomas B. Fordham Institute
  • Dr. Marcy Stein, Professor of Education, University of Washington Tacoma
