I sent a copy of this post, thanks Rapunzel, to the superintendent of schools where I live and wanted to know why these things are so skewed.  This is coming to Michigan. My brother-in-law's mother is on the state board and I asked her what she thought of Common Core and she thought it was very good.  The family is NOT liberal.  I think everyone should make copies of articles about Common Core and send them to the superintendents and ask them to explain what is going on.  Maybe they can put enough pressure on the state to get rid of it.

I'm starting to think we should have had a separate category for Common Core as more pops up.  Has you BIL's mother seen how they do math under Common Core?  If not have her watch the video on The Blaze of David Barton's one-hour program on Common Core...  there is a clip at this link -

This is not a bad idea: I'm starting to think we should have had a separate category for Common Core as more pops up, though I would recommend the topic be expanded to cover all American education since there is more going on than just Common Core.

You mean more destruction of education? :raise hand:

Thanks for the link.  I'll check it out first and then send it to her. :word:

I was going to suggest the same thing.

I realize times have changed, but I was 10 years old in 6th grade and didn't have the slightest idea what a homosexual was. Asking me about "gay marriage" would have been an exercise in futility.
