Kill Common Core and get the federal government out of education. Heritage Foundation explains to NPR reporter Cory Turner that interest groups and the federal government are pushing common core on the states, even if they can’t mandate adoption.
“This is an effort largely driven by national organizations and the federal government,” says Lindsey Burke, an education fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. “And for many, the fear is that that will come at the expense of state and local control of education.”
Burke is quick to point out, however, that the federal government is actually prohibited by law from telling states what or how to teach.
