Common Core Documentary

While searching for news articles related to Common Core, I came across this documentary video created by Home School Legal Defense Association.  Honestly, I don't know a whole lot about this association, but I was intrigued by the video when I came across a preview for it.  I watched the two minute preview and then went to find the entire video, which is called "Building the Machine- The Common Core Documentary". I think no matter what side you are on, whether it be for or against Common Core, you will find some or all of it interesting. I am not advocating either way, as I see pros and cons to the implementation of it. My state, Georgia, actually passed legislation to pull out of Common Core. I know others are following in that path. Enjoy, and let me know your thoughts. :-)

The video mentions Race to the Top.  You might enjoy my past article on that topic. When I got to the end of the video, I realized he was saying much of what I said in the article.  In addition, they end by focusing on the need for parental involvement, which is a point I also make.
