Anyone who disputes the fact that David Coleman is the architect of the Common Core Standards hasn’t done the slightest bit of basic research. (See below.) In this video, you will hear David Coleman, who is now the president and chief executive officer of the College Board, make this statement regarding the Common Core Standards: "Teachers will teach to the test. There is no force strong enough on this earth to prevent that. There’s no amount of hand-waving. There’s no amount of saying, ‘we teach to the standards, not to the test, we don’t do that here,’ whatever…."
So, think about Mr. Coleman’s statement the next time you hear someone parrot the narrative, "It’s just a set of standards."
