Rethink 'Common Core'

Do we want the same people who have brought us Obamacare and the IRS scandal of intimidating political opponents (Washington bureaucrats and politicians) to be in charge of educating our kids and grandkids with common core? I sure don’t.


Despite protestations to the contrary, common core is an Orwellian federal takeover of grade school and secondary education that rightly and legally belongs with our local teachers and school boards. The federal government under common core will be maintaining records, including personal and family data, on our kids, tracking them from kindergarten through 12th grade. An idea fraught with peril.
