This past weekend after explaining how Delaware effectively established its strong opposition to Common Core, some significant nationals asked me to consolidate it for other states to study. I decided to collect all info I have written on education and put it in this one spot.  Click on any link and it should take you there.  The most recent pieces (closest to today) are first, and as time progresses, they move down page. The walk back through time is interesting. Particularly my first pieces as I uncover the deceit of Common Core  for the first time, may be the spot where others just beginning this journey of discovering the deceit, should begin… For the rest:  if you need something I wrote on education, it is here.
