Celebrations by parents, teachers, and taxpayers across the political spectrum over the purported death of Common Core in Indiana may have been premature. When legions of outraged Hoosiers forced lawmakers to pass legislation dropping the Obama administration-pushed nationalization of K-12 education, which Republican Gov. Mike Pence signed on Monday, they thought that would be the end of the deeply controversial standards. However, now that drafts of Indiana‚Äôs ‚Äúnew‚ÄĚ standards have emerged, it is clear that they were largely copied and pasted from the scandal-plagued Common Core.
Officials still celebrated the bill, perhaps hoping nobody would notice or care. ‚ÄúI believe our students are best served when decisions about education are made at the state and local level,‚ÄĚ Gov.

I have also said it's a parents' duty to oversee their children's education--this is why it will probably be home schoolers who will get the most benefit from CC since they don't need to have the John Birch Society and Rush Limbaugh, they don't want their children to turn out like that group and individual!
Also you will not only get at least a CC like standards and a demand for proof of student having learn something if Business and Govt. start having independent tests to see if that student had learn something through the years.
