The point is that CC, in practice, is not teaching several ways, and the way it is teaching is one that is better taught later, if at all.

Uh, yes.
"Choosing Mumia as their commencement speaker, to me, shows how this newest group of Goddard graduates expresses their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that.” Thinking radically, yes. Critically, no. I'm not even sure this can be called thinking. "...our commencements are intimate affairs where each student serves as her or his own valedictorian..." So everyone is a self-declared genius? Again, this doesn't sound like critical thinking to me, and is a recipe for disaster in a healthy society.

The problem is getting enough pols of any party that have the GUTS to repeal it. I won't hold my breath.
No one should be surprised by this. After all, Obama has spent his entire life skipping anything having to do with intelligence.
"President Obama argued that the country is much better off economically, but people just don't realize it because wages "aren't going up"." Gee Barry, it's hard for wages to go up when you don't have a wage - because you have no job! "We've had the longest run of uninterrupted private sector job growth in our history." Well gee, Barry, mightn't that be due to the fact that spreading anemic growth over six years would yield such a worthless statistic?
"There Are Two Sides to Every Story" ... which in the Oklahoma beheading case boils down to the side wielding the knife and the side with the head being cut off.
Dude! Who needs a job when you're like high, man?
Right. Just like celebrities who get sick and then demand that the government put funding of their disease front and center, it's all about her.

Poll: 42% Expressing Buyer's Remorse?

I'm sure that 42% of the general population would have taken Romney over Obama before the election so this poll doesn't tell me much. I'd be more interested to know the percentage of buyer's remorse among those who voted for Obama. .
Another straw man "argument" typical of the Left. The author merely stated the truth, I.e. that the unions care vastly more about their compensation than about educational standards, and that the educational standards they do care about are those of the Left.
