From the Washington Post "The Answer Sheet" by Valerie Strauss:
"Variously motivated corporate interests, arguing that the core was being sloppily taught, organized a behind-the-scenes campaign to super-standardize it. They named their handiwork the Common Core State Standards to hide the fact that it was driven by policymakers in Washington D.C., who have thus far shoved it into every state except Alaska, Minnesota, Nebraska, Texas, and Virginia."

Michelle Malkin also has something to say about CCSS. She tells us how to opt out of this government brainwashing attempt.
