Common Core math/politics

Subject to keep an eye on: Common Core and opposition to it. Some complaining about math problems got my attention online, and I'd already heard some grumbling face to face. Common Core's become a Tea Party issue, but one that won't necessarily be limited to them. I saw some poorly worded math problems in my brief research online, but will have to look into this further before forming a strong opinion. But I've seen enough to recognize a political issue that's likely to have resonance.
