Letter to the Editor: States created Common Core


Evidently Ted Cruz thinks the federal government is responsible for Common Core. Recently he tweeted, “Federal govt has no business sticking its nose in education. We need to repeal every word of Common Core!”

Sorry Ted, the states created and adopted Common Core standards. Neither President Obama, nor the federal government had anything to do with them. States led by Republicans adopted the standards. This is not a partisan issue, no matter how much he wishes it were.
