See this article: "Heritage Foundation Launches 'News' Site That Will Cover Common Core"

How much more tax-exempt money from little old ladies in tennis shoes will Heritage put into it already massively funded STOP COMMON CORE diversion from the Trojan Horse: tax-supported private education run by unelected councils?  (Taxation without representation). 

(Are the unreported views of the anti-tax-funded school choice grassroots making a difference?)

 I hate to have to give thumbs up to the views of Thomas Toch at the  Carnegie Foundation for the Advancment of Teaching, but I guess I'll have to on this one:

"Heritage, like any organization, has a perfect right to produce information and commentary on education and on any other subject," said Thomas Toch, a former education correspondent for U.S. News & World Report magazine and now the head of the Washington office of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.

"But people need to understand where it [such an information site] is on the ideological spectrum and recognize that it is undoubtedly going to have a point a view."
Toch also notes that such a "news" site by a policy group is yet another example of the American public being "drawn to sources of information that they are inclined to agree with."
"As a result, were getting a lot less dialogue," he said. "We're getting a lot more self-affirmation among people who are entrenched in their positions." [Source]
