Keefer McGee, Dylan Lahr and Tyler Porter all waived their preliminary hearings yesterday. 18 year old Brett Lahr did not and was ordered held over on all charges against him in the incident. McGee testified against Lahr and the others telling the court the four set out to cause some damage the night that Sharon Budd of Ohio was struck in the face by a large rock thrown from the overpass along Route 80. Her husband testified saying it was the most gruesome thing he’d ever seen.

A new survey shows that support for the federal education standards known as the Common Core is slipping. Education Next, an education journal from Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, surveyed 5,000 respondents (including a number of educators) and found that just 40 percent of teachers back the Common Core compared to 76 percent just a year ago. At the same time, teacher opposition has tripled from 12 to 40 percent. Public support is also slipping. In 2013, 65 percent of the general public favored the standards compared to 53 percent today.
