National Opposition To Common Core Spreading

The Washington Post (4/30, Layton) reports that "groups as divergent as the tea party and the teachers union" are voicing opposition to the Common Core Standards. Moreover, "state lawmakers are concerned about the cost" and "progressives fret over new exams." Meanwhile, conservatives warn of an "national curriculum" and less local control. Meanwhile, on Tuesday, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten is scheduled to "warn that the new approach is being poorly implemented and requires a 'mid-course correction' or the effort will fall apart."
