Are opponents to Common Core really just 'white suburban moms'?

Happy January 2014!

President Obama's Education Secretary Arne Duncan told the Council of Chief State School Officers Organization in Richmond, Va., in November that the opponents to Common Core are "white suburban moms." (He later apologized.) But according to Neal McCluskey, an education scholar at the Cato Institute, the growing grassroots movement against Common Core includes both progressives and conservatives in both political parties.

In this recent interview, McCluskey talked with me about Common Core, the recent trend toward federalizing education policy in America, and how nationalizing the student loan program was used to pay for Obamacare.

P.S. This mom in Arkansas gave terrific testimony against Common Core at her local school board meeting. This is happening in state after state as parents and teachers are learning more about Common Core and that it is NOT what it was sold as!
