The Blaze, Glenn Beck’s TV, radio, magazine and internet site, reported yesterday about Common Core. It’s a well written, important piece.
Thank you, Glenn and Casey.
Common Core’s Uniform Doesn’t Fit American Students
by Casey Given, policy analyst covering education and labor issues at the Americans For Prosperity Foundation.
Though only given passing mentions, it’s a small miracle that the president has made any reference to this underreported effort at all. Both candidates and their parties have largely remained silent on Common Core until now. In fact, one recent poll by the D.C.-based nonprofit Achieve shows that 79 percent of Americans know “nothing” or “not much” about Common Core. As a result, millions of parents across the country send their children to school every day without any idea that American education as we know it is drastically changing.”
