Hey! Let’s have the federal government micromanage every public school classroom in America!
The result of that brainstorm was “Common Core,” and suddenly 5 + 5+ 5 doesn’t equal 15.
Common Core soon wore out its welcome and, one by one, states have been repealing it. You don’t hear much about it anymore.
But don’t be fooled. Mostly what they did was change the names and plug in a few rewrites. Public school still sucks.
