Terrence Moore: Common Core's Story Killers

November 26, 2013

A new book discusses the academic and common-sense case against national curriculum and testing mandates by examining the curriculum this new initiative has engendered, in all its horrors. Dr. Terrence Moore is a professor of history at Hillsdale College, advisor to Hillsdale’s Barney Charter School Initiative, and author of the new book, The Story Killers: A Common Sense Case Against the Common Core. He joins the podcast to discuss his book, why teaching real literature is better prep for jobs and life than informational text, what he's learned from testifying before legislatures on Common Core, and more.
