Have you had someone tell you one of these whoppers?
“We can withdraw from Common Core any time we want to.”
Not only is it unrealistic to think the state would withdraw once it’s spent millions of dollars in compliance, but the best response was from one senator who said: “Yes, we can withdraw from Common Core any time we want, just as we can withdraw from the federal highway program any time we want. But we don’t do that. We’re on the federal hook and they’re reeling us in.”
“I’m on the _______ school board and Common Core is not the nationalizing of education.”
Oh really? Have you read the contracts Utah’s leaders have signed? We have contractual obligations we are responsible for and the longer we stay in the more committed we will be and the greater the problems with getting out of a bad situation.
