Lily in Nashville to Declare Common Core a "state initiative"

NEA President, L. E. Garcia, was in Nashville today trying to pump life back into the rotting corpse of Common Core.  

Ravitch will there on the 19th follow up.  

From Andy Spears:
Garcia says she was initially a Common Core skeptic. But says she reviewed the standards for 6th grade, which she taught, and found them to be reasonable. She said Common Core is and should be a state initiative.

    When Lily gets a chance, she should review the rest of the standards. It might help her capture the redundancy. Then again, it might not.
