Georgia Republicans duck a sequel to Common Core fight

  // Tuesday, 12 August 2014 11:33 //

A sequel to the national war over Common Core, aimed at top history classes in public high schools across the country, is about to break out.

But Georgia’s ranking Republicans have decided to give this particular fight a miss.

You can blame, or credit, the hot race between Gov. Nathan Deal and Jason Carter, the Democrat who would overthrow him. Consider it more proof that elections can make a difference in your life – even before the final votes are cast.

Significantly, Deal’s wing man on the issue – an accidental assignment, to be sure — is state School Superintendent John Barge, who had the temerity to challenge the governor for the GOP nomination only last May.

“I’m frustrated and disappointed at the politicization of a lot of things, but education especially,” Barge said Wednesday.
