Jeb Bush: “Common Core Critics Can Go Suck an Egg!”

As speculation about a presidential run increases, there is more evidence that former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is in trouble on Common Core.  Instead of trying to deal with the myriad logical academic, developmental, psychological, and privacy problems of the Common Core system, as stated in a recent Wall Street Journal interview reported inBen Shapiro’s Truth Revolt, he had another of what Michelle Malkin had described as aCommon Core snit fit.”  Jeb whined that he has “lost [his] patience,” describing to the Journal,  “an unwillingness of special interests to improve public education.”

The Wall Street Journal further reported:

“He reiterated his support for higher academic standards–whether they are the Common Core national standards or other equally rigorous benchmarks–and for testing to measure whether students are meeting them. ‘If you don’t measure, you really don’t care,’ he said.”
