Charlie Harper Headshot

Tweet It is no longer polite to talk about the Common Core curriculum in many conservative circles.  Just as any proposal for immigration reform is immediately labeled “amnesty”, any talk of setting a national standard so that K-12 education can be portable as students move around the country or attend colleges out of state is [...]
