Establishment Republican Jeb Bush Launches Ad Campaign Supporting Common Core
libertynews.com ^ | march 20, 2014 | eric odom

Jeb Bush’s foundation is behind a new advertising campaign supporting the controversial Common Core math and language academic standards.

“Learn More, Go Further,” produced by the former Florida governor’s Foundation for Excellence in Education, is a series of digital videos — which will run for the next 10 weeks — featuring four teachers (who volunteered) explaining Common Core and answering questions about the program.

The campaign will also extend to social media, providing interactive maps to point out the areas where the standards have met challenges from legislators and the public.

Establishment Republican Jeb Bush Launches Ad Campaign Supporting Common Core

Sounds like he'd make a GREAT limited government Republican presidential candidate! I wonder if he'd consider running?

Dumb your kids down, flood the country with foreigners, you’re “not fertile enough”.

The man is a domestic enemy.

Jeb “el Heffe” Bush wants a poorly educated impoverished population to support the strongman “poppa” leader.

He’s anti-American TRASH.

Common Core seems to be an initiative by the states, not the federal government, corrections welcome.
Common Core State Standards Initiative

Unsurprisingly, what's missing from Common Core is the teaching of the federal government's constitutionally-limited powers, including the Supreme Court's clarification of limits on Congress's power to lay taxes.

“Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States.” —Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.

As long as there functional morons running around right wing websites telling conservatives that we must win ‘no matter what’, you will have enough people to elect any number of Jebs. Because as we saw last time, they will throw principle to the wind to vote for the lib and claim no choice.

They have a choice. And they choose to empower RINO/Liberals.

It is for that reason that I think efforts to “take over” or “reform” the Republican party are a waste of time and resources. They’ve abandoned principle, it’s time to abandon that organization and build a new organization. Rather than spending time and resources to fight them we should spend time and resources to fight Democrats. As it is now we have to fight two parties, and one of them is in our decision loop. Is it any surprise that we fail?

So they are teaching to start with the lower number, add up to easy numbers in sequence, and then add up the steps it took to get there.

What over complicated IDIOCY.

I must be an idiot because, no matter how many times I see that, I cannot understand it. I have no clue where these numbers are coming from or why? Inefficient???? I consider myself a bit of a numberhead, but this has me stumped.

Yup. I get that people hate to admit they were wrong. I get that no one likes throwing in the towel.

The right wing has said for 30 years that we were gonna ‘reform’ the GOP. 30 years.

Just how long do people plan on kicking the can? “This is the most important election ever!” Just like the last one. “We gotta band together this time! We’ll sort out the rinos and hold their feet to the fire next time! This one is too important!” Just like the last one.

We have about 5, maybe, people in the party worth crap and the entire funding structure backing the RINO wing. Someone tell me with a straight face that it gets ‘reformed’ or taken from within. Go ahead. Anyone wanna embarrass themselves?

We either stand on principle and vote for what we believe in, taking the chance that enough will stand with us or we accept Republican Dhimmitude. Because there ain’t no ‘fixing’ this political abortion.

A “trick” for quick mental arithmetic - if that’s what this is - can come later. First, learn to add subtract multiply and divide.

As another Bush would say, “that’s some fuzzy math”.

I honestly have no idea what they are doing.

My daughters had that crap. Math facts were not allowed - illegal in that a teacher would get in “trouble” for teaching them. So my wife and another gal went in everyday and sat in the hall doing flash cards with all of the kids. Luckily the Principal let them do it.

My one daughter had trouble with the new way - as did I! So I had to figure it out to try to help her. We gave up as she could answer them correctly on the homework and tests - even though she got marked down for doing it the “wrong” way. A good lesson to teach a fourth grader - some times the people in authority are idiots.

Her identical twin sister took to the new way quickly!? Thank goodness they both still know their math facts though. Helping them with high school homework I can’t imagine if they didn’t know their adding, subtracting, and multiplication in their head. Like finding the common denominators, common square roots, etc.

I actually do something like that in my head sometimes if I’m not too worried if I screw up. It is rounding up or down to an easier number and then adding in the numbers you added or subtracted.

BUT - hard to do if you don’t know your math facts (flash cards) - which they don’t teach any more.

Welcome to one of the many un-understandable essences of CommonCore.

Good for you. I have a friend who has tutored reading for years. She said that when CommonCore came in the number of kids who need her services have sky-rocketed. For the first time she is having to turn kids away.

The erosion of the American Experience continues unabated,
No , in fact, it’s assisted by those who have profited most deliciously from its downfall as they greased the skids.

There ought to be a lesson in there... but seriesly, we’re talking Common Core..
