Cruz nails the problem with Common Core
...The other candidates blew their answer when it came to Common Core and Cruz was the only one who brought up the abuse of power by the Obama administration to impose it on the states.
Common Core’s biggest problem is that the U.S. Department of Education has been using other programs like Race To The Top funding in order to more or less blackmail states into adopting the standards. There are very, very few curricula written to the standards, and the majority of the ones out there are barely comprehensible. Cruz’s plan to roll back the executive actions that have led to the abuse of education funding and eventually eliminate the Department of Education is the most sensible way to go about de-federalizing Common Core.
