Mr. Small had the effect of bringing a lot of attention to the topic of common core education. He should be congratulated even if he had no intent of being arrested. Those who know nothing about common core have to question what is so dangerous about common core that it is defended like that.
There has been a lot written about the privacy violations and politicalization of education under common core. My additional take on common core: It is designed, in part, to prevent the appearance of educational failure. Education will have to be dumbed down so all groups 'succeed'. Common core is not designed for gifted children. The elites can continue to send their kids to private schools where their children's education will not be hampered by common core objectives.
