Conservative activist Alveda King, a Birmingham native and niece of civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., sent Alabama lawmakers a letter last week asking them to come up with “more creative solutions than what is offered in the one size fits all Common Core curriculum.”The letter, distributed through conservative group Eagle Forum, asserts that Common Core will “do more harm than good; hurting most those least able to pull themselves up out of the current educational environment of muck and more.”

“All children need to and deserve to access their full God-given potential,” King wrote.

“By design, Common Core treats every child as a statistic to be measured by standardized tests.”
