Marco Rubio Opposes Common Core Education Standards
Common Core is basically NSA for your children.
Check it out:
“The Common Core of Data (CCD) is a program of the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics that annually collects fiscal and non-fiscal data about all public schools, public school districts and state education agencies in the United States. The data are supplied by state education agency officials and include information that describes schools and school districts, including name, address, and phone number; descriptive information about students and staff, including demographics; and fiscal data, including revenues and current expenditures.”- U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics
Common Core seems to have flown under the radar of most Americans, and its federalized ‘balanced playing field’ approach to education reform has received the praise and support of progressive education reformers within both the Republican and Democratic establishments in Washington, D.C.
The idea of socialized education, like socialized medicine (Obamacare), appeals to the masses, but what many of these uninformed taxpayers don’t know about Common Core is that the program is just another egregious government overreach into their lives, and now the lives of their children. This new ‘innovative’ education reform initiative will bring substantial costs down upon state and local school education budgets when national standards tests are imposed.
