Achieve instigator of Common Core

Achieve was one of the instigators of Common Core. (along with the ACT and the College Board). It just so happens that Achieve is funded by groups like Battelle (which argues for STEM when there is no STEM shortage), the Gates Foundation, Prudential and State Farm and Travelers, Boeing, GE, JPMorgan Chase, Intel, IBM, the Helmsley Foundation, DuPont, Cisco, Chevron, Microsoft....many of these companies pay little or no taxes. You can read about Microsoft, just to pick one, here:
