“Must Build Curriculum Standards on Correct Foundation”

 

By Henry W. Burke

 

4.21.14

 

 

Here is the best-kept secret known by the insiders who write curriculum standards: If you want first-class, exemplary, knowledge-based, academic education standards in your state, build the state standards on the strong foundation of excellent Type #1 standards.

 

 

 

The opposite is certainly true.  If you want to dictate Type #2 curriculum and the liberal, leftist, subjective ideology to be taught throughout America’s classrooms, build the standards on a Type #2 foundation. 

 

 

 

Unfortunately, Indiana and Nebraska have chosen to build their curriculum standards (K-12) on the same Type #2 foundation as Common Core; and the public can expect the consequences to be the same if these Type #2 standards are allowed to prevail in America’s classrooms.

On 4.8.14, Henry W. Burke gave a presentation before the Nebraska Department of Education and State Board of Education.  In his presentation, Mr. Burke explained the two philosophies of education and the reasons why Type #1 must be chosen as the foundation for any state that wants to make sure students learn the valuable knowledge and skills that will spur them forward to success.
