Neal McClusky of The Cato Institutewrote an op/ed for The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that was published yesterday. He pointed out that all Common Core critics are not extreme. I appreciate his article because it seems as though those who advocate the Common Core would rather label the opposition than actually debate the standards themselves like what we are seeing in Wisconsin.
An excerpt from the op/Ed:
“It may come as a surprise to some that Common Core is opposed by scholars at several leading think tanks on both the right and left, including the Heritage Foundation, the Hoover Institution, the Brookings Institution and my own Cato Institute. My research has shown there is essentially no meaningful evidence that national standards lead to superior educational outcomes.”
