THE POLITICAL LEFT AND RIGHT ARE FINDING COMMON GROUND IN OPPOSING CC


Bipartisan Common Core Opposition


In Washington State it is the Democrats leading the charge to get rid of CC.


The mainstream media first started saying it was only right-wing Tea Party conservatives opposed CC.  That is not true, CC is a bipartisan issue, and people from across the political spectrum oppose CC.  Many times people on the right oppose CC for different reasons than people on the left.

Rob Jenkins writes an article titled, Finding common ground on the Common Core

Mr. Jenkins writes: 

"ONE OF THOSE RARE AREAS OF AGREEMENT BETWEEN LEFT AND RIGHT THESE DAYS IS OVER THE COMMON CORE, THE NEW SET OF NATIONAL STANDARDS FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS."


Anthony Cody taught for 24 years and is now a nationally known education writer.  Mr. Cody wrote an article titled, A PROGRESSIVE AND A CONSERVATIVE FIND COMMON GROUND OPPOSING THE COMMON CORE.


Conservative Michelle Malkin writes:

"CLAIMS THAT COMMON CORE BUBBLED UP FROM THE STATES ARE BASS-ACKWARD. A SHADY NONPROFIT GROUP CALLED ACHIEVE INC. STOCKED WITH FEDERAL-STANDARDS ADVOCATES WHO’VE BEEN AROUND SINCE THE CLINTON YEARS, DESIGNED THE MATERIALS. THEY WERE RUBBER-STAMPED BY THE NATIONAL GOVERNORS ASSOCIATION AND THE COUNCIL OF CHIEF STATE SCHOOL OFFICERS (CCSSO) AND SUBSIDIZED BY THE GATES FOUNDATION." 


Liberal Stan Karp gives one of the best arguments against CC that I've seen in this 48 minute video.
