The Long War & Common Core by Donna Hearne Review
A comprehensive history of Common Core's background, which has roots that stretch more than a hundred years back. It is an expose of the latest effort by a progressive, autocratic elite to completely transfer all decisions concerning children from parents, teachers and school boards to themselves, and to completely transform America from a nation of responsible, moral, independent human beings endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to robots and servants of the state. "A MUST read! It's clear and widely known: Common Core is an educational disaster for America's kids. The good news is that parents can protect their kids by rejecting Common Core and by learning to embrace academic excellence once again!" - Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
