Wilson, following his part of the presentation, "Common Core - the Next Step." Wilson is an advocate with Truth in American Education, an organization that describes itself as "a nonpartisan group of citizens concerned about the centralization of education through the Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, Assessment Consortiums and Data Mining"/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press.
