Common Core: The Governments Classroom

On Tuesday, September 9th, the Family Research Council hosted a webcast to inform parents, teachers, and officials on the coming overhaul in testing and curriculum that is part of the Common Core State Standards Initiative. In preparation for the coming school year, FRC assembled guests including Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.), Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Dr. Sandra Stotsky of the University of Arkansas; Jane Robbins, Esq. of the American Principles Project; Dr. Neal McCluskey of the CATO Institute; and Will Estrada, Esq. of the Home School Legal Defense Association to examine the Initiative in depth, and provide background on its origin and aims. Host and FRC President Tony Perkins, together with Senior Fellow Sarah Perry discussed the Initiative's implications of federalism, privacy, and academic performance, and address efforts to reverse the Common Core state-by-state. It was an informative and eye-opening experience.
