Re: Don't fall for myths about Common Core.

I say don't fall for the Charlotte Observer's attempt to distract people from the real issues of the Common Core by throwing around "tea party" claims. Resistance to the Common Core provides an interesting nexus of conservatives and progressives who are willing to discuss fundamental issues. I am a progressive and my website in opposition to the Common Core is recommended on a number of conservative sites. And I commend the work of many conservatives. It's typical of the media not to mention the several hundred millions that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has pumped into the Common Core. THAT'S what got the governors interested. If you can stand the truth about the Common Core, try this: http://www.susanohanian.org/core.php.
