Common Core - Purpose

The stated purpose of the Common Core Standards Initiative is to reduce the disparity between state performance. The goal is not to improve educational outcomes for individual students. Common Core will not reduce the achievement gap within states.

US Constitutional Considerations

At the time the constitution was drafted education was deemed to be something best left to local communities and the States, and so it was left out of the Constitution. They felt this way because they were very wary of a federal government acquiring too much power under the new Constitution. They did not want the federal government dictating what should and should not be taught in schools in place of parents and the local communities. They backed up this belief with the 10th Amendment, which effectively prohibits all federal involvement in education.
