In the lecture on Aesthetic Education given to teachers in 1921, Rudolf Steiner said,
"From Play, through Beauty, to Work. This is a golden path for education. In later life the most abstract tasks, the most difficult techniques, do not arouse antipathy if this path has been followed during childhood. Locomotives and railway stations can be built in a way that is both artistic and technically sound. Such an education would give incalculably powerful impulses for social life- the human being would find his/her way back into something that is quite unknown today, the artistic in language."
Common Core standards teach "dead concepts" that will become meaningless to the future.
That is why it will fail our children.
