#Common Core Tweet for Sunday, August 17
Here’s another mom who understands The Common Core State Standards Initiative, what it really is and how the elites have tried to hang on to the fast disappearing narrative of ‘higher, rigorous and state led’ standards. Her issue: she doesn’t buy into Duncan’s attack on opponents of the CCSSI:
“It’s fascinating to me that some of the pushback is coming from, sort of, white suburban moms who — all of a sudden — their child isn’t as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isn’t quite as good as they thought they were, and that’s pretty scary…
Note to Arne Duncan: Don’t ever marginalize moms again. It makes the Fordham Institute’s PR selling of the Initiative practically impossible.
