Common Core is already a bust. Again I say: Quick, homeschool for your life! Collectivism is a failure! Don’t entrust your precious progeny to politicians, bureaucrats and teachers’ unions. They can’t save you, and the “education” they foist on unsuspecting youngsters isn’t worth a hill of beans.
Common Core Exams: New York Schools Get an F
By Gary North

The so-called common core standards will not survive. That’s because public school students can’t pass the tests.
New York State got the test results. Across the state, 69% could not pass in English, and the same was true for math. It was worse in New York City.
Last year, with easier exams, 55% passed. So, the much-heralded core curriculum tests have exposed the schools as massive failures. This will not be allowed to continue. Either the tests will be made easier or else the tests will be abandoned. Count on it. No test is ever allowed to expose tax-funded bureaucrats as total incompetents, year after year.
