10th Amendment Center
I was recently invited to speak at the Nashville, Tenn., rally against Common Core on the national protest day. What I told that audience is worth repeating.
Common Core is not wrong because of what it teaches (emphasis original).
Suppose for a moment that Ted Cruz had been POTUS for the last five years. Now, suppose President Cruz wants to push Common Core. However, instead of pushing Common Core with liberal values, President Cruz pushes Common Core with the following paradigms.
Very few actually understood the illustration. A local journalist from NBC (who told me she opposed Common Core) was confused. She asked me, “Wait… Do you support Common Core, or are you against it?”
