I totally agree with the editorial on Common Core Standards.

How ironic that Indiana has just upped the deduction a resident can claim for adopting a child, but can't adhere to common educational standards recognized by 45 other states.

If any resident adopts a child now, I would hope they would move to another state when that child is ready to start school.

Indiana is so proud of its anti-bullying laws, bragging that we are one of the few states that have such laws. Too bad the students will need them when they try to compete with the kids from other states who are way ahead of them academically.

How are colleges going to look at Indiana students in the future?
