Quin Hilyer: Rick Santorum Hits the Common Core … Hard

Quin Hilyer of the American Spectator emails:

“Asked about the Common Core tonight at the Alabama Policy Institute dinner in Mobile, here was Santorum’s answer:

‘As I was listening to your question, I felt welling up inside me {the urge] to yell out ‘NO!!!’. Instead, I will say it calmly: No.’

He went on to excoriate all efforts to nationalize education, and concluded with this:

‘The idea that we need a federal government to tell local schools whatever it is they want to tell us to do is — ABSURD.’
