At CPAC, Jeb Bush was asked by Sean Hannity if Common Core was a federal takeover.  He responded “no” and then amended his answer to “it shouldn’t be”:

With this President and this Department of Education there is a risk they will intrude … We should say quite clearly in the re-authorization of the K-12 law … the federal government has no role in the creation of standards either directly or indirectly; the federal government has no role in the creation of curriculum and content. The federal government should have no access to student ID or information.

Will this prove enough to satisfy the Common Core moms in key early primary states?

Bush’s education remarks begin around the 12 minute mark.
