David vs Goliath In #NCed

The Big Ed Complex of ‘education non-profits’ backed by left leaning groups and the NC Chamber of Commerce have been pushing Common Core in North Carolina.

Meet the grassroots group who has developed a plan to revamp the standards in the state.


A grassroots group of education activists in North Carolina has created an alternative to what they call the “failed Common Core standards.”

According to team leader Jerry Egolf of the North Carolina Academic Freedom Alliance, the North Carolina Plan is a set of academic standards that were “chosen from the very best alternatives to Common Core, exceeding those standards by significant measures and having been proven by testing results.”

Egolf informed Breitbart News that he and math standards lead Kathy Young and English Language Arts (ELA) lead Linda Harper developed the Plan over the past five years to meet “critical thinking standards.”

Their research involved reviewing some 3,000 pages of standards to find the “best of the best.” The final product consists of a remodeling of the Minnesota math standards and the 2001 Massachusetts ELA standards.

  1. You need to let people know you are a member of the NCAFA! I think the more people know about how many groups are aligned with this new plan, the better! Your reputation as an excellent blogger and researcher gives credibility to this plan.
