    Seeing as how this is the core criticism that the left has been making, we don't need to learn anything

    The right, on the other, has a lot to learn

    Here we go.... Common Core is as wrong today as you thought NCLB was wrong for its time. The only difference? It's being pushed under an Obama administration, even though NCLB was largely written by Teddy Kennedy, most liberals bristle at that charge, and will deny it to their last breath.

    I find the young man's message enlightening, refreshing, and right on. And the panel of overpaid administrators sitting there listening to it, with their six digit salaries, and their dismissive attitudes toward in the trenches teachers, and students will be dismissed probably before he was done giving it to them....And yet leaving aside the progressive attempt to subvert the curriculum involved with revisionist history among other things, it is the one size fits all cattle call that has progressivism thumb prints all over it....It should be trashed, and put something together at the local levels.....But that would take top down, centralized control away now wouldn't it.

    Why yes, CC is just as wrong as NCLB and RTTP. You say that as if it was news. It may be news to you, but it hasn't be news to me.

    But I like how you pretend that bush* didn't push this. According to you, it was all Obama and Teddy

    I find it neither refreshing nor enlightening because for the left, his message is old news. Your continued effort to claim that this is a progressive movement has long since been disproven.

    Well La De Da for you! And I am not "pretending" anything....In case this is news to you, I don't think that Bush was a "Conservative"..... But the thing is, that regardless of all of that Obama owns CC, just like he owns the PPACA, Benghazi, NSA spying on Americans, Fast and Furious, and the rest of the absolute **** that he is supposed to be ultimately responsible for....Chew on that.

    Nothing has been disproven, other than your own ability to have a civil conversation.

    Yes, that was a fact from the video series I posted that you said was just a conspiracy theory. If you would've watched the series or just read through all the facts I listed for you from the series, you would've learned that pages ago.


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

    This is from your post about the video:
    1. Parents have no recourse to influence content standards. If parents, teachers, administrators, school boards, taxpayers feel as though a standard is too easy or too hard for students in K-12, they cannot change it. If their state has adopted Common Core, that standard must be taught and must be met by their students.

    Yes the state can add or subtract up to the 15%, and no one is enforcing that. They suggest not going beyond 15%, one direction or the other or the kids may not meet the CC goals. I don't see in that post that you mentioned the ability to add or subtract 15%. If any state won't allow their district to make changes, that's on the state and that's where Rabbit's concern should be addressed.

    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.
