Amid the bickering, badgering and posturing regarding the fate of Common Core State Standards in South Carolina, I am finally able to appreciate the sagacity of my grandmother when she opined, “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.” This is exactly what we are considering under the guise of maintaining our state’s rugged individualism when it comes to anything not concocted within our borders. In essence, we are out to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
