The Alabama Legislature is in the middle of an effort to repeal federal Common Core standards. Six other states have already rescinded the standards and five others never fully adopted Common Core. Honestly, it’s hard for me to see why it’s a big deal. The idea that there is one size that fits every school across the country strikes me as odd. I’m far more interested in families deciding for themselves what children ought to learn. My personal standards would be far tougher than any legislature or school board would pass anyway.
