It’s a de facto federal takeover of the nation’s schools — ultimately all of them.

It effectively dictates how all schoolchildren will be taught — even those who are homeschooled — with no exceptions and eventually no opportunity for opt-out.

Michelle Malkin had a great post on the privacy-ending aspects of Common Core on March 15.

UPDATE: Obviously the big-picture issues are far more important in the long run, but Malkin’s dig into the details of her child’s Common Core-aligned Algebra book reveals that it “is crap,” and would make anyone wonder why we should be relying on the people who developed these materials as the sole source for national standards and curricula. Go see one of the busts here.
