Is Common Core Politicizing School Elections?

June 02, 2013 - 01:41

Education has been formalized as a state function since the tenth amendment to the United States Constitution was passed. The amendment stated "powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." States, as long as they comply with the United States Constitution, remain in charge of education.
