We've been told again and again that the Common Core Standards are being put into place to prepare our students to be ready for college & career when they graduate high school. These standards are supposed to better prepare students for life.
Shouldn't every one of these standards have a real-world application? And if so, why aren't we giving students the opportunity to use them in real-world settings?
The more we make a separation between the "real world" and the "fake world" of school, the more students will realize that we are irrelevant. And they'll be right.
