    Only somewhat plausible, on a limited number of things. The rest of it is persuasion and atmosphere.

    We cannot subtract unless it's not essential to Common Core. If we feel a standard on Common Core is way too difficult for our students (as rabbit has pointed out), there's nothing to be done about it. The school board can't change it, the administrators can't change it..... it's taking education out of local hands.

    There is a 15% rule (guideline, no one is enforcing it) that a state can make changes.

    “States can do whatever they want and always have been able to,” writes Chad Colby in an email to StateImpact. “There is no limit to what changes, additions or subtractions a state wants to make.”

    Colby says as a rule of thumb, states are encouraged to add no more than 15 percent to the standards. Otherwise, he says it would negate the ““States can do whatever they want and always have been able to,” writes Chad Colby in an email to StateImpact. “There is no limit to what changes, additions or subtractions a state wants to make.”

    That site has a lot of information. Because of fair use I cannot copy in more but it says that the standards can be shifted, delayed. Most states are adding to rather than subtracting and it does make sense not to subtract too much or the kids won't reach the standard.

    I'm sorry. I'm on my phone and cannot easily find what rabbit had to say. Could you help me out?

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t 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.

    Really, what your education level? Let's compare, go ahead.

But they’re backed by an array of organizations with multimillion dollar budgets of their own and much experience in mobilizing crowds and lobbying lawmakers, including The Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, the Pioneer Institute, Concerned Women for America and FreedomWorks."

    Well looky here... surprise surprise surprise.

    Koch brother organizations say jump and all the sudden we have conservatives jump.

    Actually its no surprise.
    Oh please.... You have in the past dismissed people including myself, for bringing up how Soros, Think Progress, Centers for American Progress, Media Matters, DailyKOS, etc are involved in stirring the pie on the liberal side, how they say jump to you and you say 'how high'?

    Now you want us to take your 'boogieman' post seriously?

    You do know that idea you're using came way before Hitler or Stalin, right?
