I watched both debates last night. There were a lot of topics that apparently off the table – including education policy. I do have to give Donald Trump kudos for bringing up Common Core in a poke at Jeb Bush.
“He’s weak on immigration — by the way, in favor of Common Core, which is also a disaster, but weak on immigration,” Trump said.
That’s it. No mention of No Child Left Behind, no questions about Common Core or high-stakes testing.
Nada zip… but apparently it’s more important to ask candidates their view on marijuana and what their Secret Service code names should be.
