The Troubles with Common Core

The best thing about this article is Santorum's admonition to communicate with your school board. Most community members and parents do not take advantage of their ability to influence this group of people, much to the detriment of our overall school system. We who teach need this voice to be heard if we want our education system to improve and yet still maintain local control.

The Troubles with Common Core

Please, this fight is difficult enough without such inaccurate hyperbole. Common Core and the miseducation of German youth in Nazi Germany are not very similar. A quick read of the Common Core standards shows an emphasis on skills and little else. There is little in the way of information you should know, or content, and much of what you should do, the process in which content is acquired. Hitler and the Nazis were very content driven in a very negative way. Again, I am not a fan of Common Core, but this charge is very unfair.

Obamacare's "Unfolding Fiscal Disaster"

Actually the CBO never said the ACA would reduce the deficit or reduce the cost of healthcare. The numbers they were asked to score included a 5% economic growth rate in GDP. That number just doesn't happen.

What is really nice about the ACA is that they are still changing the law so that we can't actually read the law to know what is in the law and yet the law goes marching on...
Nice to know there are still important issues to deal with today. At least we know the 1st Amendment is still working.

Actually, these people who are now on Obamacare policies must first search for a doctor who is allowed to accept them as patients. I know of one practice that is turning away several people a day because the practice cannot accept their insurance. The sad thing is these people, ALL of whom had insurance before that worked, have been directed to this practice by the government only to find out that same government tells the doctors the exact opposite. Yea Obamacare.

The Left Makes Its Move on Common Core

There is no history curriculum attached to Common Core. Some of the English standards focusing on reading, writing, and image analysis do impact Social Studies, but there are no content/information related standards listed within Common Core. The problem you have is with your school, not Common Core.
Thanks. Appreciate the stats

If Larry King says it, it must be true. I can now sleep peacefully tonight.
Typical lib. Say the same thing over and over again no matter the issue. Flagged for being dull and boring.
