Anti-Common Core

Common Core has been the starting point for many a lively, and at times agitated discussion. Next time on The Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk to a political science professor whose new book calls it a threat to democracy.

We’ll also spend an Academic Minute with another famous boogey man: Frankenstein.

I’m Bob Barrett…that’s this week on The Best of Our Knowledge.
