Common Core is another tool the federal government is using to get it’s foot in the door of schools around the country. This is a state rights issue pure and simple.
A backlash against the Common Core educational standards for grade school has hit the radio talk shows and Internet blogs in recent weeks.
The tea party has taken it up as a new rallying cry against what it claims is a government takeover of educating our kids.
At a recent education hearing in Alaska, a state that didn’t adopt the standards, tea party critics charged that the Common Core was developed by “extreme leftists” and “a self-avowed Maoist.” The hearing also contained references to Nazi Germany.
