In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, we listen in as Heartland Senior Fellow Bruno Behrend joins the Dave Elswick show to discuss the latest on Common Core. Behrend and Elswick talk about the the popular perceptions of common core and public education and why they are not the solution to our educational problems.
Elswick makes a comparison to the “New math” program in the past and how that led to more problems than it fixed. Behrend explains that this is just a symptom of a larger problem. In the second half of the podcast, Behrend answers questions from callers.
