Kevin Chavous: Common Core Hullabaloo Distracts from Choice

April 21, 2014

"While the adults around the country continue to bicker [about Common Core], who’s looking out for the children teetering on the brink of dropping out of school?” That's what Kevin Chavous wants to know. He wrote a recent op-ed in Education Week calling Common Core a divisive distraction from the work of getting kids better schools through school choice. He joins the podcast to discuss that op-ed, explain what people should focus on instead, and answer concerns over whether Common Core threatens school choice.
