Sparring Over Common Core

April 18, 2014

While scouring the Internets this morning, I noticed RCP had two contrasting views on Common Core — the national education standards 45 states adopted without looking at them first.

May 11, 2013

Scouring the Internets this morning I bumped into two articles.  One shows something good, the other something not so good.
