Clinton said (in one of the $225,000 speeches to bankers):
“The common core is a perfect example. I mean, the common core was negotiated by a bipartisan group of governors. And maybe they thought – I mean, I think this was a political failure because they negotiated something and they had no real agreed-upon program for explaining it and selling it to people so that they left an opening for those who were always in the education debate, who don’t think anybody should be told anything about what to study, even if it’s the multiplication tables. You know, that that should all be left to local control. And then you get into more complicated areas, as we all know, that that’s just totally off limits. And then using common core results for teacher evaluation when everybody knew that it was going to be complicated to implement.”
In the same speech she said: “Unless you’re a governor or maybe a mayor who has authority over your schools, there’s not really very much that most politicians can do because of the way our system of education is governed. Obviously, local school boards, colleges and universities, they have separate governance. And we don’t want politicians interfering too much in the independence of the governance of education.”
Yet…she support Common Core. She thinks the “community” should raise your children.
A person’s words (according to Hillary) are what you should listen to….
