I want to be against Common Core, but concisely tell me why

Posted: Updated:

Common Core has become quite the debate between teachers, families and legislators in the past couple years, but more so these last few months. It deals with the way mathematics and English courses, as well as others, are taught and how work is detailed in each subject's curriculum. Parents and teachers are angry because it's holding students back when these courses should be taught with simplicity rather than a complex, "logical" approach.

Follow AM 760's Armstrong & Getty as they talk to Dr. Sandra Stotsky, from the University of Arkansas, about Common Core and how they should understand why people are for or against it. They also incorporate listener replies via email, text and phone.
