Comments about: Common Core and ESSA – and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
Common Core was coercively pushed on school districts and states across our country, (using force and threats in addition to bribery) — it was deceptively implemented, keeps growing in its scope, and has not gone away.
Common Core was officially made federal law (ESSA) in December 2015. If Betsy DeVos does not know that, or if she does and is hiding it, she should not be our Education Secretary. We need someone who will honestly and thoroughly champion for local control of education — not just in words, and not just in little parts – but have local control truly be the top priority.
Go to the end of Blog 0205, for some links to other blogs on this website that deal with Common Core. They contain information that will be helpful to people who know nothing about Common Core, and they are also excellent resources for people who have studied Common Core for years.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos says though Common Core no longer exists – itself a controversial statement – she hopes states will still “shoot high.”
