Re: “Will Washington join handwriting revival?” (TNT, 12/23)
In the article, the author perpetuates the myth that the education standards known as Common Core are federal guidelines. In fact, these standards were created and adopted by the states alone.
There has never been any approval or promulgation by any branch of the federal government. The media just can't seem to get this right. If one wants to argue about the standards themselves, fine. But don't continue to give opponents false information to try to stave off implementation of school curricula.
