Common Core continues its crash test dummy adventure through American schools. As Top Right News previously reported, the Common Core system has utterly confused and angered both students and their parents and even many teachers. One poll showed that 40% of teachers say they oppose the program up from just 12% in 2013. And test scores everywhere have tanked.

Parents are clearly exasperated…

When will this insanity end?
