As an educator, I embrace the Common Core Standards as an opportunity to personalize the education of our students. However, I am wary of the high-stakes nature of the testing that most "reformers" are advocating. Assessment should be for the benefit of the teacher and the student to see where the current growing edge of the student is. To tie testing results to school grades, teacher evaluations, and promotion of students from one grade to another is counter-productive.
