ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how political power struggles undermine the original goal of the Common Core State standards in the U.S. A comparison of the Common Core standards and the state assessment system in Indiana is discussed. Several factors that determine the power of Common Core to change public instruction include changes in student testing, teacher training and curricula. In California, one criticism centers on the 1.25 billion U.S. dollars allotted to the implementation of Common Core.
