Common Core is encrusted with lies. It is not, as advertised, written by the "states." It is a national project created in secret without any input from teachers or state legislatures or local school boards or teachers. It is not "internationally benchmarked"; that never happened. The readings assigned in the CC English standards are 50% "informational" texts instead of great American and English literature and classics. The result is that Common Core readings are very political. One suggested reading is a salestalk for government health care (such as ObamaCare). Another suggested reading selection is global warming propaganda. Some of the fiction suggested is worthless and even pornographic.
