Quotes

Asked "Do you support or oppose the use of the Common Core standards in your state?" the responses were as follows:
"We in Alabama recognize that we're no longer an isolated group here competing against Mississippi or Tennessee or Georgia," Griffith said. "We're really competing on a global stage and we need as rigorous a curriculum as we can get."
...That was the promise – it was built on greater levels of accountability, more standardized testing, and now the law is discredited," Bushaw says. "The failed promises of No Child Left Behind account for Americans’ skepticism about the federal government’s role in public education, and Common Core is viewed through that lens."
"My focus and priority today continues to be the children of Idaho,” said Superintendent Luna. “There are several major initiatives that need continued attention -- such as teacher quality and pay through a new tiered system of licensure and a well-funded career ladder, technology implementation to increase access throughout Idaho, dual credit opportunities for all high school students and ensuring students are reading proficiently by the time they exit third grade. These are my highest priorities as I finish my second-term as State Superintendent of Public Instruction.”"
