California Embraces National Education Standards

Hosted by

Despite its problems in the Gulf of Mexico, BP is getting $300 million in stimulus money to build a power plant in Southern California. Also, with its reputation for high education standards, why has California joined 33 other states by adopting the "common core" for English and Math? Plus, a conversation with LA Unified's new deputy superintendent, rumored as the choice to replace Ray Cortines. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, he didn't say "mission accomplished," but President Obama has told Americans that combat for the US in Iraq will be over at the end of this month. What will the US do now?  Was the war worth it?
