Not surprised two DEMS want to start brainwashing kids as early as possible. Interesting home schooled kids often take the top spots at colleges! Common core is a socialist's (hey Buchanan) dream.

Actually if you took the time to really learn the origins of Common Core and who is behind it Sandra, you would realize it's a capitalist's dream. Obama's education appointees, like just about everyone else he picks, are former lobbyists - wolves watching the sheep.
Considering the details of Common Core, the righties and teanuts should love it.
