Huckabee: ‘Stop the Fight’ Over Common Core
At the NHCLC news conference, Gov. Mike Huckabee said Conservatives should “stop the fight” over Common Core and instead consider the benefits that the academic standards offer students in struggling schools. The position puts him at odds with a significant bloc of Republicans. While acknowledging that the standards have become politically unpopular, he notes that regardless of political leaning, we all want our students to achieve to the highest level.
