A pair of Washington-based anti-Common Core activists spoke Monday to about 70 people at Candlelight Christian Fellowship. "If you have concerns, do something about it," said speaker J. 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.

Question: This article reveals that a new group has formed to "protect" Idaho's sovereignty and that three of the five Coeur d'Alene trustees attended the discussion, including new ones Tom Hearn and Dave Eubanks. Thoughts?
