education. The system is set up in a way that requires students to need the help and support of their parents to get through school. Parents often find the need to be on top of their child, making sure they are completing their homework and helping them understand the difficult material taught in class (Meador). The problem is, not all parents have the time or effort to make sure their child is doing what they are supposed to do. Children of one parent may need to find a way to support themselves than rely on their mom or dad to help them with difficult homework. As a result, student's grades may drop, adding stress to students as well as their parents. Parents may feel it is their fault because they could not put in the time or effort to go over the tedious material with their child. The common core standards are not justly fit for all students and families, creating learning problems and added stress to parents as well as students. Common core has changed the way teachers educate their students and has greatly affected the stability of their jobs. Evaluating teachers based off of the success of their students is inequitable because it does not always show an accurate representation of the teacher.

Heins 5 Struggling students are assigned to teachers who have the ability and knowledge to help them. However, if the student scores low on a standardized test, the teacher may run the risk of losing their job, costing the school a well-educated teacher (Mead). The common core standards are faulty because they are unintentionally minimizing the chance for knowledgeable and able teachers to teach students. Some people claim common core is an easy and accurate way to evaluate a student and teacher's success. That statement is incorrect because the common core standards have proven to be more of a problem than to help in aiding students and teachers. Some are convinced common core is a helpful system that allows teachers to compare where struggling students should be, compared to prospering students. Despite that, every student is different in terms of learning and should not be compared to others who may be on a different reading or subject level. Others also claim that the standards were written to be more easily comprehended by teachers and students (Advantages of CCSS). However, parents of students feel they need to help their child more often with the difficult curriculum imposed by common core standards than they ever have before (Meador). Other people also declare that the student's testing results will successfully determine whether the teacher is worthy or not. However, if a teacher has done all they can to help a student who does not put in the effort to succeed, the teacher who has done their job can end up with the harsh consequence of losing their job (Meador). Common Core standards have proven to be ineffective rather than beneficial for students, teachers, and parents. We should care about the common core standards and why they are unsuitable for the education of students. Common core standards are hurting students, teachers, and parents and adds additional stress as a result of the extremely difficult and tedious material.

Heins 6 Standardized tests are too difficult for students to pass and offer consequences that not only affect the student, but the teacher. It is also unfair for a teacher's job to rely on a student's test

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
