My sister, a counselor at one of the local high schools, mentioned something about Common Core about a year ago to me and asked if my kids would do well with it if they ever had to transfer to a public school. I had never heard of it, so I did my usual research. My kids will be just fine if they ever have to transfer, but that will happen when Hell freezes over. CC is a crock of crap, to put it mildly. There are several videos from some folks in Georgia, I believe, against CC. They are well made. The Idaho Freedom Foundation also has quite a bit of information concerning CC.
