For all its impact, the Common Core is essentially an invisible empire. It doesn’t have a public office, a board of directors or a salaried staff. Its Web site lists neither a postal address nor a telephone number.
I can't tell you how many times in the past few months I've seen personal emails from David Coleman cited as authoritative statements about the Common Core. Literally, if you have a question, email the President of the College Board and hope he gets back to you.
