I attended the 2013 Republican Party of Iowa Lincoln Dinner in Cedar Rapids, IA. Senator Chuck Grassley during his remarks discussed his opposition to the Common Core State Standards. I had a chance to speak with him about it after the dinner.
Senator Grassley recently spearheaded an effort to defund the Common Core State Standards, their assessments and a federal review board looking at the Smarter Balanced and PARCC assessments that are aligned with the Common Core State Standards.
During a brief interview with Congressman Steve King (R-IA) we discussed the Common Core State Standards and whether he’s aware of any ongoing action within the House.
