You know that the education of our children (or should I say the non educating) has been deliberately dumbed down and for a reason which we are now living through. If you are truly saddened by this I would hope you would work to defeat Common Core which is being implemented in 46 States. It's appalling and should scare the bejeezus out of you. People, we need to wake up! What is happening in our schools is a crime and we haven't been paying attention and there are consequences!!
