Support For Common Core Broad

A Spokesman-Review editorial Saturday supports Common Core:

But lately, Common Core has been smeared as a federal effort to ensure that all schools are the same and that the students become indoctrinated with liberal dogma. Back in March, Glenn Beck devoted his radio show to the topic, spreading disinformation with his special blend of ignorance and hyperbole.

Besides being dumber, our kids are going to be indoctrinated with extreme leftist ideology. We will not save our country unless we save it first from this attack.” The next day, the inbox at the Idaho Department of Education began to fill up with criticisms of Common Core/Spokesman-Review Editorial Board.
