As Common Core controversy mounts, several states are renaming the education standards, reports Fox News.
Common Core is now “The Iowa Core” in the Hawkeye State. In Florida, it’s “Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.”
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed an executive order to erase the name “Common Core.” Instead, officials will refer to “Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards.’’
Other states may follow suit. “We will probably do something really silly like changing the name of it to something else”to confuse opponents, said Louisiana Rep. Walt Leger, D-New Orleans.
