The Common Core education “standards” and test are coming under increasing fire. Ever since the RNC came out in opposition, more and more voices are being heard. Common Core is not a good idea. In fact, it is a very bad idea, as you would surmise if you knew nothing more than it was spawned as an outgrowth of a UN effort, and has been funded and pushed by the far, far left Bill & Melinda Gates foundation.
There is no shortage of articles available about Common Core, but most do not tie it all together in a coherent fashion. An article from the Eagle Forum landed today. It is clear and coherent. And I encourage you to read it here. And then. you need to take action. Contact your state reps and senators. Only the states can stop this, but they need a push. Your push.
