Skip to comments.States Ditch Common Core - The ObamaCare Of Education

Education: Oklahoma joins South Carolina and Indiana in opposing one-size-fits-all U.S. education standards that have turned schools into leftist re-education camps, with political statements masquerading as instruction.
Not as much attention has been paid to Common Core as has been paid to ObamaCare. But like the faux Greek columns in Denver at Barack Obama's nomination in 2008, they were supposed to be the twin pillars of his legacy. Both, however, are fake promises, Trojan horses for government control of key sectors of American society and our economy.
Five years ago, 46 states gave up a big chunk of their sovereignty by embracing a set of national teaching and education standards. Since the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) concept originated with a coalition of state governors, with the goal of setting a uniform standard for grades K-12 nationwide, the common belief was: What could go wrong?
On June 5, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin signed a bipartisan bill to replace CCSS in English and math with standards to be designed by her state. She detailed what went wrong, a rising sentiment around the nation.

Get out of the education business.....period.
Lol you might want to fix the title here..
... And then again, maybe not
People need to demand that the School Board purge this nonsense immediately. If they refuse, get a new school board. if the State refuses to let them, get rid of the Governor and the Legislature. Let California, New York, and Massachusetts show what happens when you indoctrinate children.
The real question is. . .DID THEY GET RID OF THE DATA BASE THAT WENT WITH THE COMMON CORE?
Oh, no, not another failure for Obama? <sarc off
Another Reason to Homeschool
ObamaCore...THIS has got a ring to it! If only it had some legs, like ObamaCare. I’m going to do my part and use the term every chance I get.
Making kids the pawns in a game of political indoctrination - utterly reprehensible.
America’s Marxists will stop at nothing.
Obamacore! LOVE IT!
I like the way the style of the name “Obamacare,” which was the narcissist in chief’s initial hope for a legacy, has become the go-to name for failure, like the Ford Edsel.
The Ford Motor Company lost millions of dollars on the Edsel’s development, manufacturing and marketing. The very word “Edsel” became a popular symbol for failure.
That alone is reason enough to home school.

There will be no way for him to disown this fiasco.
Remember a short while ago, when the website issues came to light, that the libs and MSM kept calling it ‘The Affordable Care Act’? That didn’t last long. It had no ring to it plus I’m sure the sheeple didn’t know what they were referring to.
F you and your socialist agenda ya butthead.
