I'm glad your critiques of 'Common Core' are not based/ founded on ideology.

In my opinion, a focus on ideological issues could significantly detract from the math issues that you'd want to have clarified. The best way (IMHO) is to restrict the ideology just to the comments from readers and (if essential) to your responses to those comments - but minimize it in any case for most productive results (and possible conversions of opinions) over the long term.

I've not seen your blog earlier - but I shall certainly try to follow it in future.

Best wishes
