Oklahoma Dumps Common Core as Dominoes Fall
In a major victory for opponents of the deeply controversial Common Core, Oklahoma officially dumped the education standards.
“Do you have proof of this spurious accusation?”
I think this proves it, at least for me:
“Fallin, who initially supported the national standards, claimed the plot started out with good intentions. Unfortunately, federal overreach has tainted Common Core,”
She somehow thought that the federal government wouldn’t take it over...that was INCREDIBLY STUPID on her part.
this common core crap sure seems like socialism to me.
Dumb down everyone so as the lessers can stay up?
She signed the law, she issued an EO continuing it, but supposedly without federal dollars, and she was the head of the NGA while that organization was developing the implementation plan.
And I graduated! See... This is why you need testing :)
I felt kind of like a jerk posting that. The truth is ... when we’re punching out replies and emails at breakneck speed... we (I) make mistakes all over the place ... I just thought it was funny in the context of us all making fun of the Common Propaganda.
I almost married a beautiful Russian a couple years ago - NOT a mail order bride. She had very good grammar ... in Russia, they take Calculus in 10th grade. So, not dumb at all - business degree from Bentley, been her 17 years.
But, she was making fun of her friends ... their bad grammar. She said “Some of my friends ... their English ... they sound like they are Illiteral.”
Just a mistake, but in the context of making fun of others, it was perfect, since she, at that moment, was completely ‘illiteral.’
Happy weekend !
Well, she’s been ‘her’ for 34 years, she’s been ‘here’ for 17 :-) sea, I grajiated 2.
All I ask of the public school system is that they produce 17-18 year olds that can just read, write, and count. Is that so hard?
