Common core dictated by the Federal Gov.

Those 45 states that adopted the Federal Common Core Standards are the states that accepted the Federal Money from the Obama Administration. The stipulation for the grant money is that the states must teach what the Federal Government dictates. Bev Purdue is the one we can thank who put the state of North Carolina behind the "Common Core 8 Ball". She accepted the education stimulus federal money now the state has to jump through the federal guideline hoops.
