Rand Paul from Kentucky tried to advertise his stance on the State Standards with his recent amendment to the Senate’s Every Child Achieves Act:
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.: Filed an amendment that would strengthen existing language that specifies that
no state is required to adopt the Common Core State Standards.
It’s too bad his stance is woefully misinformed:
“If you have a
national curriculumand rules, you’ll never get to these new ideas,” the Senator said.
