Join us to hear Rep. Rokita sketch out his vision for the federal role in K–12 education with an eye toward the upcoming elections.
An analysis of media coverage of the Common Core State Standards Initiative shows the effort largely flew under the radar until recently, despite the large number of students affected. As media coverage has increased and the public has become more educated about the Common Core, the controversy surrounding it has intensified.
With the Common Core State Standards encountering remarkable political turbulence, you might think advocates would focus their energies on making their case and answering critics. After all, just yesterday Indiana became the first state to reverse its decision to adopt the Common Core.
On the right, the Common Core has been a source of bitter division for nearly two years. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have championed the adoption of these K–12 standards in reading and math, while tea-party critics have savagely denounced the whole thing as misguided and the educational equivalent of Obamacare.
Join a diverse group of panelists — including sociologists, education experts, and students — for a discussion of how public policy and culture can help families lay a firmer foundation for their children’s educational success, and of how the effects of paternal involvement vary by socioeconomic background.
This event will coincide with the release of a new report by AEI’s Mary Habeck, which analyzes why current national security policy is failing to stop the advancement of al Qaeda and its affiliates and what the US can do to develop a successful strategy to defeat this enemy.
During this event, experts with many different views on the ACA will offer their predictions for the future.
