"Michael Paul Goldenberg raises a number of questions about the
wisdom of using the Common Core State Standards to guide reform of U.
S. mathematics education. In the discussions that led to our
recently published position statement on high school mathematics, we
weighed risks and potential benefits of working within the CCSS
framework and concluded that a strategy of moving ahead is preferable
to scrapping the unprecedented national accord and starting over.
Explicit in our statement of that conclusion was the assumption that
CCSS for mathematics is a living document to be modified as
experiences recommend. We honestly believe that if the community of
mathematics education professionals contributes its knowledge,
experience, and watchful eye to the process, the results can be good
for the field. Goldenberg has made a useful start in identifying the
issues that we must attend to as the process moves ahead."
