Tim Bishop loves Common Core and mistakenly believes we didn’t have high standards before because he said during his recent debate with his opponent, Senator Lee Zeldin that we have nothing to replace the standards with.
He also seems to think the only problem was the rollout which is the same thing he says about Obamacare – it’s only the rollout.
Listen to him get caught in a lie at the end of the video below. He never addresses the fact that the only standards eligible for Race to the Top funds were Common Core after he was called on it.
The standards we had in New York were very high. We were fine.
