Rural Missouri School Can’t Give Grades: #HB1490

This letter from Stover, a rural Missouri school district, speaks volumes about the effect Common Core Standards is having in our schools.

You can almost audibly hear the frustration in the teacher’s words. Imagine what the children are feeling.

If you pair this with the proposed Amendment 3, that is attempting to tie teacher’s jobs to performance, and state accreditation, you can see the clear and present danger this represents to rural districts.

They will be the next to fall, following poor urban districts in KC and St Louis.

This letter, from a Stover teacher, clearly shows the problems both faculty and students are facing.
