It’s my understanding that the Common Core Curriculum was a bi-partisan effort of the national governors association and a similar organization of the superintendents of education with lofty goals.
It’s also my observation that the Obama Administration tied some stimulus money to participation in it.
The next step, predictably, will be the forcing by the feds of a curriculum that will be objectionable. They have our tax money. They can bribe compliance.
When we look back in this years in the future, we will see that Gov. Nathan Deal and state School Superintendent Barge have been played like saps.
Education of children should be a local thing, not something dictated by people in D.C.
Ms. Berens, Marietta School Board Ward 7, the train wreck you said that will occur if this is stopped (MDJ article on Common Core, May 10), will be the eventual indoctrination of Georgia school children, if this proceeds.
