Common Core has serious, serious problems in content and implementation. The author who wrote theRead More post above is partly correct when she writes; states 'voluntarily' adopted the federal standards, but she fails to mention many volunteered under the threat of losing federal education dollars if they did not. Many states adopted the standards without ever having examined them or putting them to public debate either.....much like the Obamacare legislation Nancy Pelosi said we must first past 'it' in order to see what is in it. Are we not experiencing the fallout of such ludicrous and fallacious reasoning?? Some of the standards writers didn't even sign on off on the final product due to their concerns over low level and/or illogical rigor and content bias problems not to mention the serious and real legitimate concerns about student data privacy. Parent groups around the country are gathering real time examples of common core assignments, and fighting hard to protect their children from this egregious federal encroachment into the classroom. Please visit the following sights for more information about why Common Core is yet another federal government overreach unfriendly to the principles of liberty and freedom...and real education. We should not be on the Common Core bandwagon. education liberty watch.org www.eagleforum.org http://www.theeducationalfreedomcoalition.org/
