The federal government will be requiring high school English teachers to drop Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and…who knows…maybe Stephen King to make room for reading “Executive Order 13423: Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management.” You think this is a joke? Or maybe a synopsis of a George Orwell story? No. It´s an example of how the Common Core State Standards in English, a new government requirement for the "public schools" will work.
