NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – A panel on the Common Core educational standards has denounced the standards as being problematic for schools.
Held at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday afternoon, the panel grilled the ideas and content behind Common Core.

"The presidency of Barack Obama has shown the country what liberalism is, the kind of stuff that conservatives have been warning about for a long time," Lakely commented. "I think conservatives are coming together more now than they ever have in the past thanks to what we all are trying to oppose, the public policy changes.
