I read an article today about how nearly half of Palos Verdes School students are opting out of Common Core.
Regardless of how you feel about the educational benefits or lack thereof of the Common Core curriculum, this was an interesting statistic especially as it relates comparatively to other “affluent” neighborhoods around the country.

For whatever its worth, my opinion on this is that because Palos Verdes School rankings are so very, very high which is a HUGE reason Palos Verdes home values are so high and consistently so and consistently remain resilient to the economic down cycles, whatever it is that can be done to keep the quality of education to high standards is a great thing. And my gut feeling is that “outside” influences from a bureaucratic authority which tries to create a “one size fits all” system, is NOT the way to keep Palos Verdes School standards high.Palos Verdes School
