Re: the Common Core in Ohio story: There appears to still be plenty of reason to opt out of state schooling in Ohio, until the federal government gives back to the states all of the sovereignty over education that they enjoyed in the 20th century, and that Canadian provinces still enjoy, by repealing and replacing ESSA. Giving states such freedom should mean that at least some of them would accept the opportunity to create a pathway of faster acceleration through the Common Core standards than is possible at present, when their slow pace of learning ensures -- mandates -- that all of America's children fall three years behind the Chinese in mathematics, and two years behind all of the other leading jurisdictions in East Asia and northern Europe.
