The Summer of Common Core

Email Email Print

Most observers who have paid any attention at all know that Common Core is the single most divisive issue within the GOP these days, and that fizzier has spread from right to left as indeed have many of the issues surrounding education reform.

Today’s the New York Times catches up to the controversies.

For an introduction to the many perspectives on the issue, read my interviews with:

Jeb Bush –pro-Common Core (July 31, 2103);

Marco Rubio –anti-Common Core (July 31, 2013);

Craig Barrett, former Intel CEO –pro-Common Core (March 20, 2014)

John Engler, former MI governor and head of the Business Roundtable –pro-Common Core (August 8, 2014)

Patricia Levesque –head of the Foundation for Excellence in Education –pro-Common Core (August 3, 2013)

Emmett McGroarty with the American Principles Project –anti Common Core (August 3, 2013)

Bill Bennett, former Secretary of Education –undecided on the Common Core (July 31, 2013)

Jay Mathews, author and Washington Post education columnist –undecided on the Common Core (July 31, 2013)

As the summer of 2010 was the “Tea Party” summer, look for this summer to crystalize many campaigns around the issue of Common Core, though more on a local level and in the state races than in the federal races, though surely it will surface there as well.
