Sandra Stotsky on Governors and the Common Core

National Association of Scholars

NAS board member Sandra Stotsky has an article at Breitbart.com, "Governors in Sheep's Clothing Deceiving Parents About Common Core." An excerpt:

Republican governors playing games on the parents in their states, such as those from Indiana, New Jersey, Tennessee, Florida, Pennsylvania, and maybe Maine and Oklahoma, have issued executive orders or signed bills that express disfavor for state standards and tests based on the Common Core, and they have often set up standards review or revision committees. But they have also ensured they get back a slightly amended cut-and-paste job so they can use Common Core-based tests and buy good will from organizations that want Gates Foundation money to continue flowing into their coffers.
