I'm amazed at the outrage of all the Liberals who elected Obama and ushered in this nightmare called Common Core. it is Socialism at its finest being taught at a level where human beings are most influenced, grade school. It seems that Common Core teaches our children about Economic Fairness and Equality by promoting Unions and protests and using Historical figures like Caesar Chavez as an example of greatness and that Business Owners and land owners are evil and greedy.

I agree with the criticisms of Common Core, and while its nice to see educators speaking out, I hear a lot of complaining but NO solutions. Its very easy to get on a soap box and point out the problems, quite another to step up and offer solutions or alternatives.

Government out of education. Problem solved.

We have offered up solutions...let schools get back to creating their own curriculum based on the needs of their own particular students.....raise the bar without damaging our educational system. Pull back from APPR based on student performance on high stakes testing....we have offered up MANY SOLUTIONS....the one major one is get the FED GOV'T out of the STATES business!
