Common Core is on a rough road in South Carolina.

The nationwide program, designed to make educational standards consistent across the states, has already made its way into the schools of South Carolina, where teachers are being prepped and textbooks circulated for the 2014-15 school year.

The state has spent millions on the program.

But many see it as a federal mandate that changes the way classes are taught in South Carolina to a practice endorsed by bureaucrats. Gov. Nikki Haley has expressed opposition to it, and some state lawmakers sought to kill the standards.

It was even widely reported that the South Carolina Legislature had abolished Common Core when they passed a bill earlier this year to overhaul state standards for the 2015-16 school year.
