[Susan notes: This fine letter points out that the Common Core's pledge to graduate all students 'college and career ready' rests on wordplay, not reality. No evidence for it whatsoever.
To the editor
The emphasis is on the politics of the Common Core standards in As G.O.P. Wedge, the Common Core Cuts Both Ways (front page, April 20) and David Brooks's column When the Circus Descends (April 18). Let's focus instead on the policy's substantive problems.
