Common Core Boycott

11.11.13 | Bob Price

A boycott of Common Core is in the works in New York State. Next Monday, Nov. 18, the start of American Education Week, Common Core’s opponents are asking parents to keep their kids home from school to protest the program.  The protest has brought together political opposites. Conservative and liberal critics share a common concern about losing control of their local schools.  Also joining the protest is the New York State United Teachers. The 600,000-member union is calling for a three-year moratorium on tying state assessments to teacher evaluations.
