    Florida Lawmaker Warns Common Core Will Turn Children 'Homosexual'

    Over the past few months the new U.S. education standard known as 'Common Core' has attracted its fair share of negative attention by opponents.

    But Florida Republican State Rep. Charles Van Zanttook the Common Core critique to a new level by claiming that the educational initiative promoted by the Obama administration will turn your children "homosexual".

    I wonder and I'm just going to ask if anyone on the Debate Politics Forum agrees with Glenn Beck when he says that Common Core is "breeding an entire new generation of slaves'?

    If anyone agrees with Beck, and if Florida Rep Van Zant is correct they'll be homosexual slaves, eh?

    Common Core does suck, but just not that way.

    I dont know anything about the US educational system.

    Is it true that words like "phd", "diploma", "masters degree" and "graduate degree" are not understood as achievements but as product brands there?

    And that for 2000 dollars you can go to a wooden shed in the middle of some swamp where a fat guy with a beer hat, will print you a "degree"?

    Schools maintain records. Employers do background checks. I am sure that if I went to law firm to apply to be a ambulance chaser they would check out my credentials to see if I am actually qualified.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Thanks to that moron the common core supporters will use that idiot's comments to discredit common core opponents.

    Common Core itself is largely benevolent, but meaningless (like most standards). The curriculum designers that want to patch on top of Common Core (and even want to slap the label of Common Core onto it), on the other hand, do suck (also, in another way).

    Okay, Common Core is a very pitiful system. It standardizes mediocrity and only deepens the poor teaching style of teaching for a test (that is also standardized to low standards). I wouldn't say that it is making our children slaves, thats a bit to the extreme. I like to save fanatic opposition for things like wars. However, I believe it is clearly limiting the worth of school in allowing kids to grow intellectually and to critically think to a dangerous degree. I've seen first hand how poor public school was before common core. With school being where a lot of students get all or most of their learning, to continuously worsen the system is a very bad idea.

    The homosexual part should go in one ear and out the other. Leave it to a Republican to say something moronic like that. At least he didn't mention rape so that's a positive change I suppose

    Maybe so.

    It depends on the firm.

    I'm sure that many of them would be happy to hire you and put you out there to make money for the firm if you met their minimum requirements.

    If you have any evidence to the contrary, I'd like to see it.

    Of course, and in some states people seem to get their driver's license from cereal boxes.
