Michigan State Representative Tom McMillin (R-Rochester Hills) wrote an excellent piece for The Detroit News.
Gates’s investment of over $6 million in Fordham and over $1.5 million in Gov. Bush’s foundation is paying dividends. They and their new Conservatives for Higher Standards are following orders – push the national standards regardless of mediocre quality, and slander anyone who asks questions as “anti-standards.” But unless we ask questions, and demand answers, we will have to settle for the drab conformity of Common Core. Michigan students deserve so much better.
Yes they do!
