What Do You Think? CCSS: Math – Too Hard or Just Right?

I saw these two articles posted on Google Plus today (thanks Mr. Stone). I read them both and am married to a math teacher. I would love to hear your thoughts. I need to start having more educational discussions. I would love to start chatting with others. Until then, leave a comment!

Interestingly contrasting stories this week:

One that asks whether CCSS is too hard, and one in which a Chicago school reports gains based on CCSS.
