OH: Don’t trust educational fads like Common Core
WI: Keep the feds out of our schools! Common core standards will undermine local control of education “One surprising defender is conservative education analyst Chester Finn, who believes common core can be the key to a kind of grand bargain between federal, state and local governments on education policy. In his words, “if everybody’s schools use the same academic targets and metrics to track their academic performance — duly reported by demographic subgroup, perhaps by individual classrooms too — and if everybody has access to his information via a transparent reporting system, a powerful case can be made for getting ‘big government’ to back away from managing schools.”  This brings to mind Winston Churchill’s definition of an appeaser as someone who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”
