John W. Vetter: Common Core is junk

Parents, by now you have seen the TV ads and the barrage of Internet ads regarding Common Core being taught here in the Empire school district and Modesto City Schools. Please research this government monstrosity by Googling the Brookings Institute, Cato Institute, Hoover and Heritage Foundation. All have negative research on the minimal gains, at best, from the project your children will be taught.
