Common Core is a progressive program that will dumb down our kids by chipping away at academic excellence in the name of fairness, diversity and social justice. It is nothing more than a federal takeover of school curriculum and standards across the country. Common Core’s standards undermine local control of education by forcing us to use their progressive curricular materials and forces untested, mediocre and incoherent theories on America’s schoolchildren. Governor McCrory, please take a long hard look and this program and get North Carolina out of it.

    NC can do better than Common Core. Stick to the basics. People in past generations knew more than students today because they learned the basics.

    When is the last time politicians stepped foot in a classroom? Why are the methods of education that put you where you are today not good enough now?

    Common Core is laced with Sharia doctrine besides confusing our students and parents. Parents are not able to help their children with their homework in most instances. Common Core creates a huge amount of excess work for Teachers and students.
