Hey, its New York. They can do whatever they want to there, just make sure it stays there. We don't need any more narcissistic clowns that think they need to spread their "wisdom" to the rest of the country like Bloomberg is doing.
Their views have little to do with what arbitrary generation someone is assigned to. It has more to do with the fact that young people are still in the process of learning, forming their own opinions, rejecting the opinions they were fed as "facts" by educators. As people get older and gain more real-world experience, opinions (political and otherwise) mature and change. This may take longer than in the past though, due to the self-reinforcing nature of social media that millenials are immersed in.
I thought private property rights become limited when the owner invites the public onto the property, especially when it is a place of business. At that point, the rights of patrons often overshadow the owner's rights.

Obama To Go Big on Unilateral Amnesty

"Why has Obama changed his mind on the limits of his executive power so many times?" Simple. In the beginning, he knew much of what he would like to do was illegal and would be challenged. But as time went on, he realized the people and departments responsible for carrying out his commands were unquestioningly doing everything he told them to, legal or not. So now that he knows that nobody is going to challenge his decrees, nothing is holding him back. Too bad not even the Republicans seem interested in using their constitutional powers to slow him down.

"anti special needs" - really Ramond? Its a valid point - what does Six Flags have to do with education - for special needs kids or others? Are school playgrounds no longer considered a safe environment to have fun?
Apparently he has already been released, with orders to report to an immigration judge at some future date. Unfortunately for him, it no longer is just an immigration matter. The Social Security and tax fraud should mean automatic deportation as a criminal.

Socialism Punk’d You, Millennials

While you have your phone out, ask him if he thinks the Millennials' social media and technology-use expertise qualifies anyone to be able to design one. Being highly educated is one thing, having a useful education is something else.

Common Core Becomes a Nightmare

Test scores haven't dropped because the tests change to match the curriculum that has seriously degraded over the last 40 years. Even SAT has to modify its testing, because the normal educational standards it tests for are no longer taught in our schools. The essay and other "stressful" parts are made optional or dropped. This is a result of the tests becoming the end goal of education rather than just a measurement of education.
"But I’m afraid under this administration, the government believes they are church and President Obama is the deity." The last line of this article pretty much sums up the last 6 years.

If the state's Board of Education won't follow the wishes of the state legislature, the governor and the citizens of the state, then the solution seems simple enough. The legislature should dissolve the Board of Education, then replace it with something or someone willing to do so.
