Western Journalism has reported extensively about the lengths to which leftists will go in protecting the federal educational guidelines included in the oft-maligned Common Core program. Nevertheless, public backlash, primarily from concerned parents, has led many states to reconsider their alignment with the curriculum.
One such state is Indiana, which decided to drop Common Core from its public school system last month. As a result, recent reports indicate the state’s superintendent of public instruction received a stern letter from the U.S. Department of Education.
