On August 9 at the Smart Girl Summit in Indianapolis, Heartland Institute Research Fellow Joy Pullmann was featured in a panel discussion on Common Core, led by Diane Durdaller and also including Marcia Chambliss of Smart Girl Politics, and Rosa Leonetti. The title of the panel: “Common Core — What’s Happening to Our Schools?”
