In an attempt to “correct” the record, the Washington Examiner fails Journalism 101 and not only incorrectly labels a statement a “lie,” but also perpetuates additional mistruths in its inaccurate and over-the-top coverage of the Common Core:

Kasich also falsely implied that President Obama had nothing to do with Common Core adoption. President Obama essentially forced states to agree to adopt Common Core before they could get a waiver from the standards created by No Child Left Behind, which more than a decade after its adoption had become obsolete and increasingly harsh and impossible to meet. There are exactly zero federal laws or waiver requirements that require adoption of Common Core.
