The problem with Common Core--No one understands it

NY Times:

Donald Trump Doesn’t Understand Common Core (and Neither Do His Rivals)


He is promising to solve a problem that doesn’t exist by using power the president doesn’t have.
While I concede that there is a lot that Donald Trump does not know, when it comes to Common Core there has been a failure to explain it in a way that parents or students understand.  The failure to get political support for the program before imposing it on the education system was a material mistake, that politicians are reacting to.  

It is still a political loser whether Trump understands it or not.  It was one of the reasons that Jeb Bush's campaign got off to such a poor start.  Saying that the other candidates do not understand it actually is putting them closer to the voters attitudes toward the program than its supporters are.
