GOP Blasts Obama-backed National Education Standards
The increasingly vocal campaign to stop an Obama administration-backed set of national education standards known as “Common Core” from being forced on state governments and local schools just got a major boost on Friday. Meeting in Los Angeles last week, the Republican National Committee (RNC) unanimously adopted a resolution blasting the “one size fits all” educational scheme as “an inappropriate overreach to standardize and control the education of our children so they will conform to a preconceived ‘normal.’”

Instead of the “Common Core State Standards” being pushed by the Obama administration using taxpayer-funded bribes, the RNC, echoing the 2012 Republican Party Platform, said it believed in providing “broad education choices” to parents and children at the state and local level. A free market-based approach to education is best, the resolution continues, adding that it would help students to ...

UPS, I really wouldn't know it if would be worse -- since it hasn't been implemented, nor does it likely to be, but the "No Child Left Behind," has proven consequences, e.g., Ex-Schools Chief in Atlanta Is Indicted in Testing Scandal that was pointed out in this thread on SA news. So, as you can see there in my last comment on it or here for this one for that matter, I don't think I gave a blanket endorsement to the idea of universal testing or more importantly universal uniformity being required across the country. We do have many ignorant children coming out of public schools, which has to be universally stopped but probably not by a "one shoe fits all" action.

No child left behind was a disaster, but the president's (notice no demeaning term is used here) Common Core makes it look good.

"The foundational philosophy of Common Core is to create students ready for social action so they can force a social-justice agenda. Common Core is not about students who actually have a grasp of the intricate facts of a true set of what E.D. Hirsch would call "core knowledge." Common Core is about, as David Feith would say "an obsession with race, class, gender, and sexuality as the forces of history and political identity." Nationalizing education via Common Core is about promoting an agenda of Anti-capitalism, sustainability, white guilt, global citizenship, self-esteem, affective math, and culture sensitive spelling and language. This is done in the name of consciousness raising, moral relativity, fairness, diversity, and multiculturalism."

No, Obama, got that one right on Obamacare right :thuimbsup: As mentioned before I have no use for the faith-base initiative that Baby Bush started and President Obama continued, The Faith-Based Initiative and ‘Charitable Choice’: Harmful to Religious Liberty and Civil Rights.

For good or ill, the States, and I'm not saying the Federal government has a duty to see that children get minimal amount of care and education. Sometimes that minimum may not even qualify for being a bare minimum, but anyway. If anyone doesn't like it, sometimes Canada and various Latin American countries like Mexico will let in various groups with "unique' ideas --you know like Jones Town to set up their own communities and do just about what they please, but if you live in the U.S. a Jones Town won't be allowed to exist, well unless they're a mosque/mandressa.

So, Mike, when are you moving to Costa Rica?

Mike of N.Y., if you remember that I have supported the state responsibility to set education standards. It seems to me that great G.O.P. heroes, Baby-face Bush, started the No Child Left Behind Act which was a Federal push to create something like standards for education on a national level? It seems to me many teacher unions didn't want to be held to any standard? Is that something you support?
Anyway, long before the Bushes and Obama there were standardized tests, e.g., those from University of Iowa, were at least establishing a haphazard national standard. Never fear though, Mike, from what I can see at least in Nebraska teachers have been successfully dodging most standards.
Yes, throwing open doors to Muhammadans is one example of Washington stupidity, Baby-faced Bush's for example. Baby-faced Bush's education sure left him behind!
You forget I'm not knee-jerk, Jim. You should try not being one, too.

Bush was wrong about "No Child.." and Homeland Security. Seriously wrong. Obama is wrong about Obamacare, the Constitution, Arab Spring, kissing up to dictators, using victims of tragedies as human shields to promote his agendas, avoiding the term "muslim" in the midst of muslim attacks, and so on.

Ah, Mike, you brought up a point which was why there was a difference in political Parties, the role of the Federal Govt. I would assume that many would say that a Federal Govt. has the right to make certain a young person has the basic skills to function anywhere in the U.S. It seems like the Fed. and state govts. have made provisions for such people as the Amish, where it IS nearly be impossible for a child growing up in that environment doesn't have the education to function outside it.

Ah but Jim, you start from a faulty premise, that the central government is better able to determine what education children need, than are their parents, their schools, their local governments, or as a very last resort, their State governments. It is amazing how some folks believe Washington is expert in every existing field of endeavor, when there isn't any evidence whatsoever for this confidence.

Something of interest now, even if it from an article several years old,

"The French government may not officially recognize religion, but it would do well to at least recognize evangelical communities' indirect, healing role in preventing one of France's greatest headaches: Islamic radicalism. Here's how it happens: As often the only institutions interested in befriending the poor, evangelical churches offer a safety net to immigrants. They help them assimilate—find apartments, jobs, friends. Consequently, evangelical churches seem to be stopping some of the newcomers from becoming easy prey for Muslim fundamentalists and from engaging in criminal behavior." excerpt The French Reconnection

But a truly independent thinker would find abhorrent the idea of national education standards. That idea is for the equal outcomes, teach to the test, teach them what to think mentality. Aside from which, education is none of the central government's business.

Ah, but does this means it really will help the Democrats? Well, not if Christian parents make sure their children read such books Come, Let Us Reason. Christians are made in the image of God, the only person they are suppose to follow like sheep is Christ.

John 10
27 "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
28 and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.
29 "My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.---NASB

When one listens to a commentator, you should always be asking what's wrong with what he is saying? What is he leaving out? Can I go look for more information somewhere else? Now, I know a few of you don't believe I do this with Liberal talkers like Bill Moyers, but, oh, do I
