GrokTV Event – Seacoast Republican Women Congressional Forum – Question 5- Nationalizing Education Standards?

For the cost of our educational system at the K-12 levels, our results are deplorable.  No Child Left Behind was an attempt to “fix” that with uneven results (and unions screaming that they should not be judged or evaluated by their pupils results).  Now, Fed. Ed. Sec. Arne Duncan, with his Race To the Top, is trying to institute an even more Top Down Federalization of education by “hijacking” what is known as the Common Core Standards with “awards” (or is that handcuffs?) of Federal money.  Is this something that NH should be in, or should local control be preeminent?

Question 5: What is your opinion of the Common Core Standards that the Federal Govt is suggesting as a national curriculum?
