ANALYSIS/OPINION:

If the central planners and progressive bureaucrats get their way, teaching the Constitution to American schoolchildren will be a thing of the past.

The Common Core academic standards are unacceptable. This top-down, bureaucratic takeover of local schools must be stopped. If it is not, it will dumb down education, collect data on children and their families, and leave American students behind in the global economy.

Since Washington politicians started running our schools, costs have exploded for taxpayers, and students’ test scores have decreased.
