Donald Trump Releases Education Video, Condemns Common Core

Not a lot of candidates have weighed in on K–12 education this cycle, with a few exceptions: Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush released a detailed policy plan on MLK Day, and now GOP front-runner Donald Trump has released a completely undetailed education-themed screed on social media.

Trump loves the word “disaster” in all contexts, and this isn’t the first time he’s used it to describe the Common Core: At a debate in September, when talking about the struggling Jeb, Trump said, “He’s weak on immigration, and, by the way in favor of Common Core, which is a disaster.”
