Common Core Controversy Explored

New Hampshire Public Radio (6/4, Evans-Brown) runs a piece on the “massive transformation” that the Common Core Standards are bringing to New Hampshire schools, noting that though the standards were released in 2010, “the public is just starting to take note.” The piece describes the “growing conservative backlash” based on Federal involvement, noting that some critics say that “the Common Core Initiative is a direct descendant of liberal efforts to enact a national curriculum in decades past.” The piece describes the origins of the Common Core, noting that the “federal government was not directly involved.”
