Common Core rejected in Indiana...Let the games begin.

In my part of Virginia, the media and all the powers-that-be pushed Common Core aggressively, from the very start, five years ago. 

Typically, I'm a contrarian intellectual and it happened again in this case. The more I studied this thing, the more  I thought, this will be a disaster.

I think it will be a disaster at the same level as ObamaCare and for many of the same reasons: elements in the government trying to grab too much, too fast, for all the wrong reasons, and telling a ton of lies all along the way. In a few years everybody will wish that these things had never been born.

So for me the Indiana story is great news. I hope every state will reject CCSS. I've been writing articles against it for years. Here's the latest from a few days ago:  "New Coke, Vista, Common Core, and Bill Gates"

 (I believe that Bill Gates has a lot to answer for in this situation. And I believe he will answer, in the sense that people will blame him for not spending his money more intelligently.)
