The Problem With Common Core
Is that it's kinda like ObamaCare.
Commentator George Will compared Common Core, the top-down federal government school curriculum, with ObamaCare, the top-down federal government health insurance plan. Obviously, the comparison is apt. Will said, “The advocates of the Common Core say, ‘If you like local control of your school you can keep it, period. If you like your local curriculum you can keep it, period.’ And people don’t believe them for very good reasons. This is the thin end of an enormous wedge of federal power that will be wielded for the constant progressive purpose of concentrating power in Washington so that it can impose continental solutions to problems nationwide.”
