This is affecting Catholic schools, too.
The idea of core courses is a good one.
The idea of core courses coming from liberal “eddikators” is not a good one.
As in “rotten to the core”.
Dislike of Common Core is one thing the right and many on the left have in common. We can defeat it!
My question is why did so many states just blindly buy into it?
Say NO TO commie core.
Federal dollars? I dunno.
Money. They got some money from the feds if they committed to using Common Core, IIRC.
A teacher from my old district posted on FB that his school administration had a meeting and told the teachers they were NOT to voice any criticism of Common Core. He said the teachers and students were physically ill over what they were being forced to do and that they weren’t allowed to do real teaching, but only follow the scripted lessons, questions, and pre-written teacher responses. No critical or outside the box thinking allowed. No freedom in teaching style. He sounded heartbroken...sick...and scared.
So, sell your birthright for a mess of pottage. Glad our states are looking out for us. /sarc
And thank God that my State of Texas had the wisdom not to sell its soul for the almighty dollar.
Nebraska. Not buyin’ it, either.
Good for Nebraska - one of my favorite states!
“Incentives” from the Obama/CommonCore administration - brought to your local schools by Bill Ayers, Obama’s shadow-secretary of education.
No Common Core in TX? I’m seriously thinking our children will grow up to be Texans. DH and I are California natives and truly love our home state, despite the damage that has been done to it. But I can’t recommend it to my children as a place to raise their own children when the time comes. Texas sounds better.
