The Common Core is being adopted in state after state: it is a de-facto national K-12 curriculum. Is it improving public education or worsening it? Who funded the Common Core project? What businesses profit from it? Is it state-led? Does it nationalize education? What about testing? Who controls and has access to the data?
Lawrence Borland addresses these questions.
