MSTE Friday Lunch Series - Peter Braunfeld

Champaign , USA

Add to:

Speaker Information:

Peter Braunfeld

On October 9th, Peter Braunfeld will present "The Common Core and the Grand Canyon."

About the Talk:

Peter Braunfeld will be leading a discussion about Common Core. The Common Core Mission Statement asserts that "the standards are designed to be robust, and relevant to the real world." But a sampling of the Common Core test items utterly fails to support this thesis. This seminar is designed to help attendees understand the abyss between pious hopes and dismal reality.
