WATCH: Abandon Ship! Is the Common Core Sinking?

For the Common Core - already a controversial subject- the weather appears to be worsening.  Launched in 2009 to raise the bar for all students, it’s begun to list, battered on all sides.  Why all this nautical prose?  To prepare you for tonight’s NewsHour report, which calls upon a 1950’s Hollywood shipwreck film to bring viewers up-to-date on the Common Core’s unfolding dramas.

Nice summary of the year in Common Core but I wish the report included some experts on testing and evaluation. Ironically the one most critical of CCSS was the conservative guy from Cato Institute. It’s the first time in a long time the left and the right, the unions and the conservatives agree on something - Common Core got to go.
