Did you know that, unlike local school board members who are elected by the voters, State Board of Education members are appointed by Governor Brewer. They are unelected bureaucrats. Governor Brewer is the only person who can stop Common Core.
Remember, it was Governor Pence of Indiana who stopped the Indiana State Board of Education from implementing Common Core.
