Common Core – eroding support

No common opinions on the Common Core – http://www.aei.org/publication/no-common-opinions-on-the-common-core/

I must admit some ambivalence on this issue. I think given the centralized nature of education currently that it is a necessary evil. That being said, if I could build a system from scratch, it would be far more localized with municipalities and states making the bulk of education and standards decisions. I would also be greatly supportive of attaching school funding to the children and have it follow and flow to whichever school they or their parents saw fit to attend, promoting far more choice and accountability than we have today and allowing children to escape failing schools
