Some states rebrand controversial Common Core education standards

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) used an executive order to strip the name “Common Core” from the state’s new math and reading standards for public schools. In the Hawkeye State, the same standards are now called “The Iowa Core.” And in Florida, lawmakers want to delete “Common Core” from official documents and replace it with the cheerier-sounding “Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.”

In the face of growing opposition to the Common Core State Standards — a set of K-12 educational guidelines adopted by most of the country — officials in a handful of states are worried that the brand is already tainted. They’re keeping the standards but slapping on fresh names they hope will have greater public appeal. ...

Why Anne, very correct! though sometimes even members of the Reactionary Party will think for themselves David Koch's Americans for Prosperity Loses an Election in Iowa. I suppose to be fair I should also put this one up, No, the Kochs Aren't Behind the Government Shutdown.

Back to education, first I have always said parents should monitor what their children learn in public schools, by the way, isn't the last message about public schools trying to copy some practices of home schooling? Finally Common Core ideas have been around for more than 1/2 a century. The idea was to make kids, probably quite a few who state Universities have to accept by law to know enough so they won't flunk out. Businesses want workers who can compete and function on the world stage. But if a job only requires pushing a broom, hey that you can have a deficient education. If you're a star sports player or violin maker you can skip a lot of things also. But you're average kid is neither of those.

Common core religious standards are for the heathens to worry about. God's people need not be afraid of antichrist commandments.

Think homework can help your kid's grade? Think again This is anti-test program, in that the kids can take a test, until they get it right. It's more about concept learning than rote learning -- as I understand it. It's about passing the test of life--or the one to get into college or get a particular job.

Mr. Lincoln you are amazing. I love following you and then trying to figure the jigsaw out for comprehension.

It all goes to show that at the very least, the standards have a serious image problem. Tea Party conservatives, calling it "Obamacore," are planning a big march on Washington this summer to oppose the new standards.

But the growing number of liberal critics of Common Core aren't likely to join hands with them and march. They fundamentally disagree about how to reform public education and are alienated by marchers' other calls to abolish teacher tenure and the federal Education Department.

excerpt from, Political Rivals Find Common Ground Over Common Core.

Now the smart homeschoolers can have a leg up on those public school students who don't adopt Common Core, by adopting the best parts themselves. It's time we stop importing gardeners and roofers from Mexico, we need a lot of tea-party kids taking up those jobs!

Almighty God has all knowledge and all power. Almighty God is always truthful and never deceitful. Almighty God is always wise and kind. Almighty God is eternal and rules over all the earth.

Civil governments can serve God (1 Peter 2:14). This is true.

However much civil governments may want to be like God, they do not have all of God's attributes.
