Do you want information for your legislators about the architect of Common Core? Do you want parents to know who was in charge of crafting the standards for their children and states?
Share this wide and far.
The transcript of the speech may be found here. Does the writing of the standards sound “statewide led” to you?
(David Coleman) So if there are aspects of what I‟m about to say that you disagree with and if the
81 Common Core is kind of a pain in the ass, built on top of your other duties while
82 funding is being cut, don‟t blame me. Blame Lauren, because there is clearly no
83 way this country would be talking about 46 states adopting a set of common
84 standards had not a somewhat younger, still revolutionary mind thought that this
85 nation needed a new set of standards. And for that I am most grateful to you.
