Is Opposition to Eureka Math and Common Core really limited to a few isolated troublemakers, like John White told the American Press?

October 18, 2014

Recently John White made the claim that only a few isolated pockets of parents in a few parishes are upset about Common Core and Eureka Math. Small groups of people in several isolated areas of Louisiana, including Calcasieu Parish, are voicing loud opposition to Common Core State Standards, said state Superintendent of Education John White.

The Louisiana Eureka Rebellion

October 8, 2014

Across the state parents and teachers are confronting their school boards and curriculum leaders with the same universal complaint. Eureka Math sucks.

I was honored this past weekend (and I accidentally lied)

When I wrote my earlier post about simply attending the Rising Tide new media conference in New Orleans this past weekend I was really just planning to check it out and meet up with some folks. When I wrote that post I was not intending on speaking, just mingling . . . and then I […]
