Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is a staunch proponent of Common Core education standards. Nevertheless, Common Core servers keep crashing when students take computer-based tests.
According to the Houston Chronicle, "A problem with a computer server is stopping Common Core testing in Nevada, Montana and North Dakota after a previous technical issue delayed it last month, officials said."
State Superintendent of the Montana Office of Public Instruction Denise Juneau is quoted as saying that, "I just don't think Measured Progress was ready for that influx."
As reported by the Houston Chronicle, "The three states contract with the New Hampshire-based Measured Progress to administer the tests, which are linked to the hotly disputed federal education standards. The company said in a statement Wednesday that its platform isn't able to support the number of students taking the tests, although server capacity was increased beyond what the tests' creator, Smarter Balanced, said was needed."
Jeb Bush is seeking the GOP nomination for President in 2016, but he's floundering in opinion polls with registered Republican voters due to his rabid support for Common Core.
