I would ask Nancy Thorner, who wrote the bizarre letter about the Common Core testing, to please look at the website of this test program.
I have no idea how she works Vladimir Lenin into this, but being a former teacher I can tell you that teaching the core classes will continue as it has, and by no means is this some kind of "liberal" agenda.
And by the way, Ms. Thorner, the Affordable Care Act is not a government failure. It will allow millions of Americans who previously had no health insurance to buy insurance from insurance companies. You need to be better informed before you rant about things you do not know.
