    The most vulnerable students will be the most at risk. So the court tied New Jersey's core curriculum standards to the most equitable school funding mandates in the country. It requires more progressive, student-centered teaching with strong elements of collaborative and reflective learning. Teachers will require training and new materials will need to be purchased, both of which will be additional expenses. Tawney called the private schools "England's hereditary curse". Some parents have said that the new assessments are too difficult and are causing too much stress, leading to an "opt-out movement" in which parents refuse to let their children take the tests.

    The third problem encountered by attempts to promote the common good is that of individualism. Standards have often codified sanitized versions of history, politics, and culture that reinforce official myths while leaving out the voices and concerns of our students and communities. This is currently unknown, but there will be additional costs for implementation. Not a single one of them was a K—3 classroom teacher or early childhood professional. Not everyone who gets a menu can pay for the meal. The court agreed that standards for what schools should teach and students should learn seemed like a good idea.

    It makes no sense for us to have high expectations of our students when A common policy for education book don't have high expectations for our school system. For example, the "number and quantity" category contains four domains: the real number system ; quantities; the complex number system ; and vector and matrix quantities. While all may agree, for example, that an affordable health system, a healthy educational system, and a clean environment are all parts of the common good, some will say that more should be invested in health than in education, while others will favor directing resources to the environment over both health and education. As usual, organizing and activism are the only things that will save us, and remain our best hope for the future of public education and the democracy that depends on it. The "vector and matrix quantities" domain is reserved for advanced students, as are some of the standards in "the complex number system".
