A state initiative--really? When the Feds gave an option: "freely opt in" or else lose a big pot full of Federal dollars? At a time when Common Core standards and testing had not been developed the states had to opt in to something unknown or else lose funding; another pelosi: you have to pass it to find out what's in it.
