If you brag, don’t you need to credit the little people

My fair state of Indiana decided it would keen to give every parent a two-color booklet (8.5 x 11) for every Core 40 class that the student is enrolled in. The inside cover claims that these are “world-class Standards” (whatever that means).
I was checking the California (home for 18 years) Education website and found something peculuar: California had the same wording on its 10th grade English course as Indiana.
“Those cheats plagarized our “‘world class” standards!” I huffed.
Not really…we’ve been wondering where our “WC” standards came from in the first place.
Indiana’s standards were “official” in 2000; California’s were adopted in Dec. 1997.
Someone didn’t credit their sources.
