Get Politics Out of the Common Core: The Chronicle of Higher Education | Common Core ELA | Literacy & Math |

There can be no significant reform of higher education without a major overhaul of primary education and extensive changes in secondary education.

They have to spend their time catching up rather than taking the courses they need for their degree programs.
