Stop Common Core: Part 5
Update: Even union-owned Michigan is trying to pull away from Common Core.
The Common Core State Standards are a set of K-12 school standards being implemented in most states in English language arts and math. Proponents of the Common Core claim that the initiative was state-led; that the states adopted the standards voluntarily; and that the standards are “rigorous” and will prepare our children for college and careers.
This video shows why these claims do not ring true – and why parents, teachers, and legislators must demand that their states reconsider their hasty decisions to adopt the Common Core and again reassert their constitutional control over education.
