Are States Losing Common Ground on Common Core?

Hosted by  • 

Common Core was invented by 45 state governors to raise educational standards for math and reading while maintaining local control. But, when Washington stepped in with monetary incentives, red-state conservatives saw federal control and denounced Common Core as “Obamacore.” Now would-be GOP presidential candidates are lining up on both sides, and some blue-state progressives are also opposed for what they call “over-testing.” We’ll update the movement to “repeal and replace” Common Core.

Also, the Islamic State publishes a new video of a captured Jordanian pilot burned to death, and Google enters the ride-sharing war.
