Common Core has become the latest in a series of educational experiments pushed down on our kids by the State, teachers union officials, and entrenched political lobby. The problem is not confined to one party. Both Democrats and RINO's have voted to give the state Board of Education more power over our schools and to push Common Core, high stakes testing, outcome based education, and Smarter Balanced Assessment.
Worse, many of these tests, standards, and educational experiments have been developed in secret without parental input, and ask intimate, personal questions of school children who do not realize that this information is being bundled and sold to corporations.
Both executive councilors running for governor have been voting to confirm Hassan's pro-Common Core activists to the state Board of Education. We need someone in the corner office who will fight to return local and parental control over education.
