Myth.  States that adopted CC did so voluntarily, without federal coercion.

Fact.  Most states that adopted CC did so to be eligible to compete for federal Race to the Top funding. To have a chance at that money, recession-racked states agreed to adopt the CC standards and the aligned national tests sight unseen. In addition, the Obama Administration tied No Child Left Behind waivers to CC adoption, making it very difficult for a state to obtain a waiver without agreeing to accept CC.

All the teachers and student that I have come in contact with that have started “working this new way of education” are miserable.  Many good teachers are on the verge of quitting.
