Dr. Duke Pesta

Our guest today was Dr. Duke PestaFreedomProject Education’s Academic Director and Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.  He came on to

share about Common Core.  They talked about Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and his lawsuit against the Federal Government over Common Core.  Dr. Pesta’s issue with Common Core is that it’s not about  education, it’s about money and centralized control.

According to Pesta, he who makes the test controls what’s taught.  How much control should the federal government have over issues like this?
