I am sorry for all the people who were offended by Mike McClellan calling some who oppose Common Core crazies, but I understand his frustration. The Common Core standards were not developed by the federal government, but under the direction of the states (NGA & CCSSO). They do not contain liberal ideology or required “borderline pornographic” reading material. The standards themselves are rigorous and challenging compared to the old AZ standards. Sure, we can jettison them, and, for millions of dollars, replace them with other standards that will look a lot like the Common Core, but what would be the point?
