Next week, EdNC will be running perspectives on the Common Core standards.

The Hechinger Report has invited two principals to write a weekly column that will examine the Common Core through the eyes of those who have lived it. Carol Burris is the principal of South Side High School in the Rockville Centre School District in New York. Jayne Ellspermann is principal of West Port High School in Ocala, Florida. The column will take the format of letters written between Burris and Ellspermann, inspired in part by the long-running Education Week column, “Bridging Differences.”

Here is the first letter: Common Core will lead to misery, not higher achievement
