Herbert Wolff Reviews "Carousel"

In the annals of modern musical theater, no composers are more lauded – and more performed – than Oscar Hammerstein and Richard Rodgers.  To many theatergoers – including this reviewer – Carousel is the finest of all their compositions...not as ground-breaking as Oklahoma…nor as appealing perhaps as The Sound of Music and South Pacific.  But for the diversity of the musical score, and the lyrics that give depth to the characters and the story, my pick is Carousel -- which is now playing at Glimmerglass Music Festival.

Karen Hitchcock: The Many Faces Of The Common Core Debate

Over the last several months, discussions of the Common Core State Standards have been eclipsed by the public’s reaction to major issues which have arisen in their implementation – issues such as declining student test scores, and the role of such test scores in teacher evaluations, evaluations mandated if a state was to receive its share of federal money from the “Race to the Top” funds. The Common Core, we remember, is a set of standards or goals which has been developed to describe what our students should achieve at various points in their education. Accepted by some 45 states and the District of Columbia, these standards are meant to ensure that our young people will be prepared for whatever futures our rapidly evolving society creates, that they will be college-ready and employment-ready, that they will be globally competitive.
