    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I'm teaching 1st grade now and I was totally appalled by the crappy math Common Core standards. They removed counting money --- using a ruler --- telling time to the half hour ---- I was just shocked.
    Yes. I too have concerns with the math standards. One of the things that bothered me was the fact that children have to construct in writing a step by step process of how they arrived at an answer. Just putting the correct answer isn't enough and they would lose points. That off that bat lowers math scores for children who may have trouble verbalizing each step and then writing them. I have a boy in my room who is a math whiz but has a hard time with language skills. It doesn't seem fair he may show up as not proficient in math for a weakness in his language skills.

    I just did (parents, admins, school boards, teachers cannot change anything in CCSS even if they know it's not an appropriate standard). You didn't dispute it. I'm not going to go through the entire video series tonight and post all the facts for you. Maybe you could post one that you're unsure if it's true and we can research it.

    At our last inservice, we were slammed with the job of creating a rubric for every. single. subcategory. on the CCSS report card. Each subject has about 5-6 subcategories - so that's Reading, Writing, Spelling, Grammar, Math, Science, Social Studies, Behavior ----- 8 subjects x 5 = 40 rubrics. Kill me now.

    I'm sorry I didn't glean that from the video. I didn't see any facts like that. Only her representation of the origins of CC according to her. I didn't see any facts about the actual program itself. The only statement I saw that resembles what you just said is as I posted before, CC is a conspiracy by Gates, Ayers and The Governors Association to prevent states,districts and parents from deciding how our children are educated. Not quite the same thing you said. Is it a conspiracy?

    I cared about NCLB, this not so much. Are you saying I need to contact congress about things I don't care about?

    Okay. I'm not going to get into this anymore with you. You just want to talk about her opinions and not the actual facts about Common Core. So..... have a nice night.

    You posted her opinions. As such they are open for discussion. I asked you to present the facts from her video. Why is that a problem? I've explained that I don't see facts. You must have or you wouldn't have posted it.
