Video: The Changing Role of Education in America: Consequences of the Common Core

The American Principles Project (APP), the Heartland Institute and Pioneer Institute, co-hosted a one-day conference entitled “The Changing Role of Education in America: Consequences of the Common Core” at Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, Monday, September 9, 2013 to discuss the destructive implications of the Common Core Standards and the future of the education of America’s youth.

More than 200 people were in attendance at the sold out conference. Among the states represented were California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, and West Virginia; most of which have strong grassroot movements fighting against the Common Core.

Leading experts addressed the conference on the changing landscape of the American education system and the implications of the Common Core Standards. Concerned citizens, many of whom are parents, joined in the discussion by sharing their experiences and concerns.
