Tennessee High School Student Gives Most Coherent Explanation Of ‘Why’ Common Core Is A Failed Idea [VIDEO]

It finally took a high school student to explain why Common Core is not such a good idea. And surprisingly, it’s not a government Conspiracy, but a basic misunderstanding of education.

Ethan Young, a senior at Farragut High School Knox County, Tennessee, only further underscored an ongoing conversation I’ve been having with Regent Jeff Krauss – pinpointed with Mr. Young saying, “If everything I learned in high school was a measurable objective: I haven’t learned anything.”

I firmly believe ‘education centers’ (junior high, high school and colleges) do not strictly exist to create future workers, but to allow for the discovery of knowledge. Further, Mr. Young drives it home with his statement, “Creativity, appreciation, inquisitiveness – these are impossible to scale, but they are the purpose of education.”

Well said, young man, well said.
