Common Core is anything but common.

The definition of the word common is: belonging equally to, or shared alike by, two or more or all in question. What is now common among our political system is the redefinition of, well just everything that was once considered common in America. A family unit consisting of a father and a mother begetting and raising their own children. In the world of public education grades (A to F) were assigned to the students based on their scores on tests, the same tests administered to every child.

"Alabama's Plan 2020 "sets a different standard for students in each of several subgroups -- American Indian, Asian/Pacific islander, black, English language learners, Hispanic, multirace, poverty, special education and white."
The "race-based" standards are part of Common Core, adopted by the state board of education in November 2010."
