FILE - In this March 19, 2015 file photo, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush visits the Georgia Capitol in Atlanta. In the Republican roar over Common Core, various myths are being peddled as fact. Even so, the 2016 GOP presidential prospects who are criticizing Common Core have a point _ if an overstated one _ when they dispute the notion that it is strictly a voluntary initiative that bubbled up from communities and states.  In complicated but unmistakable ways, the federal government does put pressure on states to live up to the standards. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)
