(Des Moines, IA) Republican U.S. Senate Candidate, Matt Whitaker, just released a video today addressing the Common Core State Standards.  In an email that went to supporters the campaign wrote, “I’m writing to you today because we have serious trouble brewing in our education system and I know that you have a personally vested interest in the future of our children, our schools, and our nation.”

They said that is why they released the video in which Whitaker criticized the Common Core because he does not believe in “one-size-fits-all, top-down solutions” for the problems facing our country.  He said the Common Core represents a nationalized approach to education “that has failed so many times before.”

Common Core is becoming a wedge issue within the Republican U.S. Senate primary. Mark Jacobs has indicated support for the standards developed by the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State School Officers which opponents have pointed out were pushed out into the states without legislative grants of approvals through a competitive grant program, Race to the Top, that wasn’t authorized by Congress in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Whitaker joins Sam Clovis in addressing the standards directly during their campaign.
