Partnership for 21st Century Skills would control “hundreds of millions in federal tax dollars” under Sen. Jay Rockefeller’s 21st Century Skills Incentive Fund Act, warns Common Core’s Lynne Munson.
. . . if P21 doesn’t sign off on a particular state’s approach to integrating 21st century skills into its standards, tests, etc., that state would be ineligible to apply for federal incentive funds. And corporate donations supporting that state’s efforts to adopt 21st century skills would not be tax-deductible — in other words, they would cease to exist.
Why give a private group with a controversial set of priorities that kind of control over federal dollars?
