Christie flips on Common Core, leaves Jeb Bush by himself

CHRISTIE ABANDONS JEB ON COMMON CORE

Chris Christie flips on Common Core. W. Post:

“New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who brought the Common Core State Standards to his state and loudly defended them as recently as 2013, said Thursday that ‘it simply is not working’ and that he wants new academic standards.”

Now Jeb stands alone. Politico:

“[Christie] joins the ranks of other GOP presidential candidates who supported, then ditched [Common Core]: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, once a Common Core supporter, is now suing the federal government … Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee previously supported Common Core … [Now] he’s tweeting, ‘Kill Common Core. Restore common sense.’ Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker also supported the Common Core … but has since called for replacing the standards and aligned tests.”
