I figured that's what you meant, it's just some people get really carried away with this issue, actually claiming that the Federal Gubmint is telling everyone what to teach.
There was no way I was going to click on every link in that piece, but Iclicked on one (toward the end, about who developed the standards) and was taken to an opinion piece on a Wordpress blog. Lots of links make something appear well-sourced, but...no. Just no. And the blog post didn't even make its point very well, arguing for multiculturalism in English classes, because CC doesn't restrict that. It was somewhat better when taking on the "close reading"CC advocates, but failed by limiting what that means ONLY to the New Criticism! Talk to any post-strucurallist/deconstructionist and they'll go on and on about a close reading of the text, to find the rupture, of course (ugh, can we just bury Derrida once and for all, please?)
Sorry to go on like this. It's a topic that just kind of gets to me.
