Well, America: if you thought the people behind the Common Core couldnt possibly be any more moronic or tone deaf, you were wrong.
A Common Core worksheet handed out this year in a sixth-grade history class in Bryant, Ark. required students to ditch two amendments from the Bill of Rights, reports EAGnews.org. Students were also told to plug their rights eliminations by creating a visual aid that could act as a clear representation of your proposal.
EAGnews says the assignment is part of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, an attempt by educrats to standardize various K-12 curricula across the country. This fall, 45 states and the District of Columbia have begun implementing the curriculum.
The assignments instructions, which include hideous grammatical errors such as the use of the plural pronouns they and their to refer to the singular noun government, tell students that the government of United States is currently revisiting the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
Unknown federal officials have determined that the Bill of Rights is outdated and may not remain in its current form any longer, the instructions say.
Consequently, the sixth-graders were asked to participate on the National Revised Bill of Rights Task Force. They were required to omit two and add two amendments to the Bill of Rights.

This “core” is rotten.
Don’t bother with the First Amendment, kids; that one’s already dead.
Well, the Constitution is soooo negative, a real downer. Nothing like removing clutter to freshen things up.
Is “common core” the big one in the middle of a carbunkle?
Clearly, as misnomer. It’s actually “Communist Core”.
I think we should void the 5th Amendment so we can drag clowns like you off to jail, without too much fuss.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
"Mo lawyer or graduate of a law school shall be elected to the office of President or Vice President of the United States, or shall serve in the Senate or House of Representatives of the United States."
“...if you thought the people behind the Common Core couldnt possibly be any more moronic or tone deaf...”
They are neither moronic or tone deaf; they are attacking.
The (square root of -1)th Amendment: The Right to Privacy and Abortion.
2. The (infinity)th Amendment: The Right to the Separation of Church and State.
What? These two aren't in the Constitution? That's not what the liberals/Democrats claim. They are always referring to the Constitutional "Right to Privacy" so we have a Constitutional Right to Abortion and a Constitutional Right to the Separation of Church and State.
I have no problem with the assignment.Sounds like it could draw more students to originalism then drive them away.
Evil never sleeps.
I think Cruz is the only senator that understands this.
