There's nothing uncommon about Common Core's opposition! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. The biggest detractors of Common Core may be the ones implementing it! Forty percent of teachers now say they oppose the education takeover -- three times as many as a year ago. And they aren't the only ones. Everyday Americans have even more doubts. Fifty-nine percent, Gallup says, disapprove of the standards President Obama is pushing on states. Apart from being untested, Common Core is another way for the government to inject liberal messages into classrooms that really need to get back to basics. Only a third of 8th graders enrolled in public schools can read and do math at their grade level. And liberals want to give the government more control over education? If the President wants to improve test scores, he should start by transferring the authority back to parents where it belongs. Otherwise, the leaders spending our money won't be the only ones who can't do math! Check out the facts on Common Core at FRC.org.
