Here’s an astonishing sign of the grassroots rebellion sweeping the country as more parents and educators experience the Common Core tests and curriculum being implemented. The New Jersey Assembly, controlled by Democrats, voted 63-7 to delay a key part of the implementation of the Common Core: the use of the tests to evaluate either teachers or students.

Democrats have 48 of 80 seats.
