"Bill Gates Tacitly Admits His Common Core Experiment Was A Failure"

Even a guy with "five brains and each one is smarter than yours" sometimes makes a mistake. AKA social science is usually difficult. Especially when mixed with politics.

“Based on everything we have learned in the past 17 years, we are evolving our education strategy,” Gates wrote on his blog as a preface to a speech he gave last week in Cleveland. He followed this by detailing how U.S. education has essentially made little improvement in the years since he and his foundation — working so closely with the Obama administration that federal officials regularly consulted foundation employees and waived ethics laws to hire several — began redirecting trillions of public dollars towards programs he now admits haven’t accomplished much.
