The Common Core State Standards Initiative is the focus of a new documentary due out early next year according to its trailer.
The three-minute trailer, which is posted by the film’s creator: the Home School Legal Defense Association, highlights former Gov. Jeb Bush's advocacy of the controversial standards and includes interviews with several education experts.
Oneof those experts, Jim Stergios of The Pioneer Institute said Common Core “takes power away from the parents” and “de-incentivizes the parent from a deep and abiding interest in their child’s education.”
Joy Pullman, editor of School Reform News, said, “The biggest misconception that Common Core proponents push on people is that there is any evidence that a system like Common Core will benefit children.”
