Laura Ingraham hosted Neal McCluskey.
McCluskey said parents are just being confronted with the educational Common Core. He described it as standards for math and Language Arts/Enblish. He said the standards are broad and don't spell out what the students should be learning or proscribes strategies to make it happen. He said many people who are experts in English/Language Arts don't know for sure what works. He said the politics of public schools guarantee students won't be held to oheherent standards. He said there is no evidence that having national standards produces higher achievement among students.
