Fiorina Criticizes Common Core, Touts Social Conservatism

In an interview with the Christian Post, published on February 6, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina expressed her views on a number of different issues, most notably on life, marriage, and Common Core.

On life:

[L]ife is an important issue that we shouldn’t be afraid to talk about. Like I said at that March for Life event, science is on our side. It shows that unborn babies feel pain and dream at five months and that the DNA on the day that we die is the same DNA we had as a zygote. Every human life is precious and has potential.

On marriage:

This is an important conversation that is going on in homes, churches, and communities across the country. I think that the worst thing the Supreme Court can do right now is shortcut this conversation.

On Common Core:

America’s future prosperity requires that changes be made to Common Core. The facts are pretty clear, the bigger our education department becomes, the worse our public education becomes. There’s no connection between spending more money in our nation’s capital and a better school system. Parents should be given choice, competition, and accountability in the classroom. Teaching entrepreneurship, innovation, risk taking, and imagination comes with local control and we have to maintain this in our school system.
