Where Are We Today?

Common Core is a special-interest takeover of education that replaces local control with national standards, treating every child as though they are the same and learn in the same way. These standards affect every school in the nation by allowing big business and bureaucrats into the classroom. The standards established through Common Core fail to account for innovation or critical thinking. Education should be about rewarding excellence and treating children like the unique individuals they are—not a race to mediocrity and commonality.

Common Core was initially adopted by forty-five states and the District of Columbia, but as the devastating effects of the standards became apparent, the willingness to fight back has increased. This lesson focuses on how and where Common Core is being implemented, and what individuals are doing to stop it and return local control to our education system.
