Gates Foundation Wants to Delay High-Stakes for Common Core

Diane Ravitch's blog reports that the Gates Foundation favors a moratorium on the consequences of Common Core testing. Since the standards were bought and paid for by the Gates Foundation, it is only right that it should call the shots. Now we know who is in charge of American education. Perhaps the foundation hopes that a delay will defuse the growing movement against Common Core.

This morning Vicki Phillips, Director of Education, College Ready at the Gates Foundation, will call for delaying the attachment of any consequences to the new Common Core State Standards, bolstering the position of those calling for an accountability moratorium.
