Common Core’s agenda beyond what states offer

July 2, 2013
The Marietta Times

Nearly every proponent of the Common Core standards begins his description of the program by calling it a "state-led initiative." Fiercely objecting to the accusation that it is a federal takeover of education, the defenders then explain that it is the state governors and state school officers who are behind this effort. The initial drivers of Common Core were the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers, both of which are private networking associations incubated in Washington, D.C., and neither of which have any legislative authority. Funny how the "state-led" label doesn't actually include the states - or their people.
