Here is a short clip of Kathlenn Porter-Magee from the Fordham Institute testifying before the Indiana legislative study committee on the Common Core Standards. She corrects Senator Earline Rodgers when she asks about Indiana’s capacity to alter the standards in order to correct shortcomings. When Senator Rodgers tries to clarify that Indiana could “make changes” the standards, she corrects her and says make “additions.”
You have to pay special attention to their words. Changes means we could delete or alter. Additions means only add to the standards. Funny, when Common Core opponents tell people the standards can’t be changed and the state can only add 15% to the standards, supporters call that misinformation.I think we have it from the horse’s mouth.
