Rotten to the Core (Part 2): Readin', Writin' and Deconstructionism

No wonder I see more and more mistakes in spelling and sentence construction in news articles. What happened to the proof readers. Guess they can not spell either. Used to look through the New York Times for mistakes. Found maybe two or three in an issue now I find two or three in one article and sometimes that many in one sentence. Yeah for the left, we are all ignorant and happy in their stupidity!

I was surprised that cursive writing has now been discontinued. What do they teach; Rules for Radicals? Oh no, not that, then they would realize what fools they have been to elect this jerk.

Don't be so smug. Reread your own writing.

The problems in education are many, but this approach is about as useful as putting a dunce cap on a kid and sitting him in a corner.

Oh, yes. Please do trust in Michelle Malkin. Trust that almost any column she writes will be filled with half baked reactionary ideas only designed to stimulate the negative emotions of those who don't know how to parse a piece of non fiction writing for the obvious and not so obvious bias.

Come to think of it, perhaps that's why you are all so afraid of the Common Core curriculum - people will become able to see through such shams as this article much more easily!

It's a piece of opinion reporting, genius- it's supposed to have a bias.

What's relevant is whether the piece is accurate. I notice you avoided addressing the content of the article, instead slinging barbs at the author while demeaning anyone who may happen to not disagree with her.

It's disgusting how much the print media (as well as web bloggers) has deteriorated. Thanks progressive teachers of social justice.

(This is the second part of an ongoing series on federal "Common Core" education standards and the corruption of academic excellence.)

The Washington, D.C., board of education earned widespread mockery this week when it proposed allowing high school students -- in the nation's own capital -- to skip a basic U.S. government course to graduate. But this is fiddlesticks compared to what the federal government is doing to eliminate American children's core knowledge base in English, language arts and history.

Thanks to the "Common Core" regime, funded with President Obama's stimulus dollars and bolstered by duped Republican governors and business groups, deconstructionism...
