This column gets more wrong than right. The CCSS are voluntary. I don't even get the Communist Core comment. It is like he is reviewing a book he has not read.

There just isn't much there there.

You must not have any children. I hope not, as your kind should not procreate.

Well my state took one look at Common Core and decided it would be a set-back for the students of Virginia. Even the promised new magic dollars out of D.C. could not hide the flaws of this lousy set of "standards". The sooner that all parents have vouchers the better.

And VA is pretty good in state to state comparisons.
But states who have done better than VA have volunteered to try them.
So good argument, but has its flaws.

Prepare ye the way of the Common Core. And then the Word will be made Fed. And Obama will dwell amongst us forever. Amen. -- From the Book of Common Core

 

Prepare for the final federalization of primary education in the USA- hereafter known as Common Core- and don’t worry so much about relics written by old, white men like the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The Tenth Amendment only helps ensure local control of those things like education policy. It only ensures that we have a big, diverse, vibrant country full...
