Conservatives at CPAC 2015 cheered and gave a standing ovation to Carly Fiorina as she aggressively called out presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for using Twitter as a means to campaign while hiding from challenges to her dismal record as a former Secretary of State.
In a panel discussion at CPAC Thursday, American Principles in Action (APIA) education director Emmett McGroarty debunked pro-Common Core talking points and made the claim that a Republican presidential nominee who supports Common Core would essentially be “unelectable” against Hillary Clinton in the general election.
A column in the Washington Post Wednesday observes that opponents of the Common Core standards continue to brave obstacles in their efforts to repeal the unpopular initiative.
A county judge has ruled that Missouri’s membership fees to the federally funded Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) is unconstitutional under the Compact Clause of the U.S. Constitution as well as under “state and federal law.”
As expected, President Obama is threatening to veto a House Republican bill that would reform the No Child Left Behind law.
Grassroots organizers and conservative groups posted an action alert on a bill that will likely be voted on this week in the House that would reauthorize the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law. The activists say HR5, known as the “Student Success Act,” will “denigrate parental rights and seize state sovereignty.”
The conservative Washington, D.C.-based American Principles in Action (APIA) is urging Congress to oppose the Strengthening Education Through Research Act (SETRA), which the group states would extend federal psychological profiling of children through increased research on “social and emotional learning.”
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) is still considering a bid for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, says Politico.
The sponsor of a bill passed by the New Jersey state Assembly to curb the use of the tests aligned with the Common Core standards said he has never received more concern about any other issue in his 14 years as a lawmaker.
A bill slated for a hearing and vote Tuesday in the South Dakota House of Representatives would phase out the Common Core standards by 2017 and allow the creation of replacement standards.
