That’s about right. These people honestly think they know better than parents and local educators. The opposition to the statist indoctrination which is known as Common Core is just a reflection of just how redneck most of America is. Better to leave your child to us. We know what is best. The government always knows what’s best…Idiots

Remember it’s not just Dems behind this abomination, this effort to consolidate all education into a federally run program, Jeb Bush is big proponent. The US Chamber of Commerce is for it too. Yet another reason to oppose the establishment GOP.
