This insightful article reported from "Politico" is by Stephanie Simon. Thanks to Stephanie for pulling back the curtain on a product that no sales pitch with its faulty methods of persuasion could SELL to arguably the largest group of saavy consumers in America - MOMS! That's because the "product" -Common Core - was meant to be consumed by their children and MOMS look closely at any product for their kids. Two major criteria just didn't make the cut: Will it harm them? Will it make them happy?
Since education and Common Core have become products in a free market economy, it's time to hold the owners of the Common Core copyright (CCSSO and NGA) accountable for quality control and false advertising. Is this just another of Bill Gates' "Microsoft monopolies"?
