The Common Core Standards and the corresponding PARCC testing are certainly shaking up education in the United States. So, is Powerhouse Education an advocate of these standards? What Powerhouse Education advocates is educational best practices and providing teachers with the tools to more easily implement them.
Teachers in the trenches of the classroom unfortunately don’t have a say in many things, from the instructional materials we use to the standards we must abide by. We believe in trying to make teachers’ lives easier, which means that if a teacher will be evaluated on their students’ achievement of the Common Core Standards, then we want to provide a simple way of making these standards more easily accessible and manageable.
We welcome working with any school, district, or state in an effort to customize Chronicle with the standards of their choice.
