If the first things you think of when you think of scoring the tests associated with Common Core are cheeseburgers and Craigslist, then two things may be true about you: you have probably never been a teacher, and you probably work for Pearson.

Another teacher with outstanding potential is set to leave the classroom. Should we blame her teacher education program for that, or a larger culture that denigrates teaching and narrows our definition of educational success?

School's out, and that means it's time again for report cards. In the spirit of the season, I have decided to issue a report card of my own. I want to share the wealth and make sure the schools that my kids attend have a taste of that accountability too.
