Good news: thanks to a lot of hard work by Kentucky State Sen. Mike Wilson, pictured here, that state’s legislature has repealed Common Core. That enormous set of education regulations and standards is the bureaucratic device intended to nationalize public schools in the United States. The move is seen as a victory for those who wish to return the nation’s schools to local control.

Kentucky was the first state to adopt the Common Core standards: http://www.kentucky.com/news/local/education/article133367274.html
