Bill Gates: New Education Standards are Necessary
Posted Sunday, March 16th 2014 @ 5pm  by KFBK News

The biggest backer of new education standards says they're necessary.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates told ABC's This Week that Common Core is not a federal education takeover.

Gates says 'I'm thrilled this is moving forward and disappointed that through confusion in various groups, its implementation is actually at risk in some states.'

He says children must be held to higher standards in math and other subjects if they want good jobs.
