Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal issued executive orders aiming to remove the Obama administration-pushed Common Core education standards from the state’s government schools, drawing widespread applause from teachers, parents, taxpayers, and activists across the political spectrum. The order seeks to kill the school nationalization scheme by withdrawing Louisiana from the federally funded national testing regime aligned with Common Core, a deeply controversial and expensive assessment that the Republican governor said was adopted in violation of state law. Education bureaucrats, though, are fighting back.

The president's plan to make student loan borrowing easier will merely insure that more and more graduates will become debt slaves, assuming they can find work.

In the ruling on Tuesday in Vergara v. State of California, all of the egregious laws protecting incompetent teachers were thrown out.

More than merely a “Potemkin village” with its façade of being state-led, Common Core is a Trojan Horse that could forever change American education.

Oklahoma became the third state to officially dump the Obama administration-pushed national education standards known as Common Core, handing a major victory to opponents of the deeply controversial scheme. On June 5, under major pressure from across the state, Republican Governor Mary Fallin signed legislation passed recently by the legislature in a landslide, officially repealing the national standards that have sparked a nationwide uprising among parents and teachers.
