Mains’ Analogy Clears Up Common Core

To The Reader’s Forum:

This is a note of appreciation to The Post-Journal and especially to JPS Superintendent Tim Mains for the superb article he wrote on the Common Core Learning Standards. The analogy of a construction project was perfect and made the presentation very readable and understandable.

The article cleared up any misperceptions we may have had and made a strong, reasonable argument for the new Standards. We hope those who have seemed so adamantly against them also read this article and will offer their comments in the same reasonable manner that Mr. Mains presented his case.

Thumbs up to The Post-Journal for printing this presentation. Thank you.
