After news of the Republican wave last night that led to the GOP reclaiming control of the U.S. Senate, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) called on the Republican-majority Senate to repeal the Common Core.
“Now is the time to honor the 10th Amendment and repeal Common Core,” Cruz said.
Watch here or below.
This is a great comment to hear, but precisely what can Congress do? They can defund the Common Core at the federal level. They can provide oversight to the U.S. Department of Education’s use of the carrot and stick approach and defund any program that is foisted on states in that manner.
They can’t repeal it in the states. This friends is a state-by-state battle.
