AFT Ships Out Common Core Avatar
Concordia follows this with recitation of all Common Core anchor standards in ELA and all practice standards in math.
AFT president Randi Weingarten is enthusiastic about Concordia's possibilities. She is "an entrepreneurial solution to provide for the needs of children, making it crystal clear who we are, what we believe and what we will fight for."
Union locals may order the 6-foot-tall female avatar in white or black.
This professional development opportunity is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and approved by the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices.
In New York City, the UFT has enthusiastically signed on, ordering a Concordia for each of the city's 1,700 public schools.
The Chicago Teachers Union website makes no mention of Concordia. There, union members seem to be thinking about other issues.
