The Common Core State Standards and related issues are non-partisan issues directly or indirectly affecting every student, parent, and citizen in the State of Washington. The issues are not a matter of Republican vs Democrat, right vs left, conservative vs liberal, red vs. blue. The issues are a matter of what is right vs wrong.
