"Narcissistic" and "sentimental" are the adjectives that best describe Emily Blumenauer's opinion piece on the Common Core ("Quit complaining about Common Core," June 16).

Instead, they are putting up a fight to say enough is enough:
Stop spending money on standards implementation and educational testing — and start investing in students by providing more instructional staff and opportunities for authentic learning.
