"These students haven't grown up with the Common Core, haven't internalized it," she said. "Now they have to master the language with very little time in the field. It's a good idea in theory, but the execution is a concern."

That is an extremely valid criticism over how Common Core is being rolled out, particularly in New York, and it applies not just to students learning to be teachers, but the students they're expected to be teaching.  The younger kids - 3d and younger - aren't having too much trouble adjusting, but the 5th graders, and up, are having Hell's own time adjusting, and it has everything to do with execution and almost nothing to do with the standards themselves.  In NY the enemy isn't the standards, it's NYS and its education department that are the enemies.
