Tomorrow night, CNN will bring yet another GOP debate to our TV screens, while tonight, Fox News has devoted its programming to town halls with the remaining GOP candidates. Greta Van Susteren was up first, setting aside “On the Record” to spend an hour with Ohio Gov. John Kasich and a studio audience made up largely of university students.
Kasich made it clear he wouldn’t be promising free college, although he did advocate for community colleges as an inexpensive path toward higher education. But K through 12? Kasich seemed stumped by a question on Common Core: Why are conservatives so opposed to it?
Or maybe they hate it because it got into their children’s classrooms and they’ve experienced it first-hand.
There’s a good way to find out if he does, and while we’re at it, we might as well subject all the candidates.
