What some leaders are saying about Common Core.
Common Core could highly impact a parent’s control of their child’s education and really cripple the role of local school districts. One technique in education we have yet to use, having tried all others, is freedom. -Congressman Rob Bishop
Common core is too common for Utah. We do not need regulations from outside of Utah directing our local…

I see at least 3 major flaws in the Common Core Curriculum
1) From Race to the Top we have received about $24 per child to implement Common Core, which is not enough to pay for even ½ of one textbook. The cost of textbooks, teacher retraining and administration will clearly cost us 100’s of millions of dollars making this an incredible unfunded mandate in a time when our schools are already strapped for cash
2) Common Core is an "outcome based" curriculum. I think I speak…Continue

Arizona received $24M to implement Common Core through Race to the Top. With 1 million school children in AZ, this works to be about $24 per child which isn’t even enough to pay for ½ of one Common Core textbook. Clearly, through book purchasing and seemingly endless hours of teacher retraining and bureaucracy, Common Core will cost the state 100’s of millions of dollars, which makes this a massive unfunded mandate in a time when our government and our…Continue

A new study concludes teens’ perception of the dangers of marijuana is at its lowest level in more than 20 years, prompting federal researchers to warn that the already high use of the drug could increase as more states move to legalize it.
The annual survey released by the National Institutes of Health found that only 41.7 percent of eighth graders believe occasional use of pot is harmful. Roughly 44.1 percent believed that its regular use was detrimental, the…Continue
