Who’s Involved in Common Core?

02/03/2015
Lecturer
Whitney Neal

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.

Whenever you see bad policy in action, chances are there are a lot of powerful interests who stand to benefit from it. This lesson reveals how a large number of groups are financially invested in imposing one set of federal standards on schools across the country. Following the money is key to understanding how and why government conspires with special interests to take over our education system.
