The Flier's endorsement of Bess Altwerger for the school board is a mistake. The Flier justified the endorsement by saying she is a founder of Save Our Schools and a former professor at Towson University. When I went to the Save Our Schools website I found that it is strongly opposed to the Common Core Standards (as is Altwerger). The website also had a link to the Republican National Committee's recent resolution to oppose the standards, which they incorrectly call a curriculum. The standards, unfortunately, have become political.
