This came after yet another one of Kasich’s very leftist justifications for his love of Common Core. There are mountains of evidence about the steady decline of public education in America since the Department of Education was elevated to Cabinet-level money-sucking status.

It’s a priority that should be high on the list of any serious conservative candidate, however.
