In a recent story about implementing the Common Core standards, reporter Liz Bowie quoted Baltimore County School Superintendent Dallas Dance as saying of the new curriculum: "We are building the plane as we fly it, but let's be clear; our passengers are safe" ("Teachers complain about access to new curriculum Sept. 23).

Seriously? It sounds like the pilots are being expected to fly without a flight plan or an operations manual.
