LISTEN:
Common Core Blockbuster: Mathematician Dr. Jim Milgram Warns Common Core Will Destroy America’s Standing in Technology

“All of this should really make you angry at the people who are responsible,” Milgram said, directing himself squarely to the parents listening to him.

During a Friday conference call sponsored by Texas-based Women on the Wall, Stanford mathematician and former member of the Common Core Validation Committee Dr. James Milgram, told listeners that if the controversial standards are not repealed, America’s place as a competitor in the technology industry will ultimately be severely undermined.

State Led. Voluntary Adoption. No Federal Role. Riiiiight.
Can I take off my tinfoil hat now? One of the biggest talking points for the proponents of common core, used to smear the opponents, was that there was no federal role in promoting the standards.

It’s all voluntary, said the professional choice architects.
