And now there are three: U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who announced his candidacy for president Monday, is the third pro-school-choice, common-core-skeptical Republican senator to throw his hat in the ring. (The other two, for those keeping score at home? Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.) Rubio, however, also has a smattering of bipartisan efforts on education under his belt. More on that below. (Education Week)
Just two days after announcing her run for president, Hillary Clinton visited Kirkwood Community College in Monticello, Iowa—a school that has a strong partnership with K-12 schools, enabling students to earn college credit while still enrolled in high school. (Education Week)
In court Monday, Judge Jerry Baxter urged educators convicted of racketeering charges in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating trial to take a deal. (Atlanta Alive)
New Jersey
Gov. Chris Christie said implementing the Common Core wasn’t working in New Jersey and that he will likely address the situation in coming weeks, among his strongest comments on the controversial education standards. (The Wall Street Journal)
