As the grassroots uprising against the Obama administration-pushed nationalization of schools continues to grow, public sentiment is quickly turning against the widely criticized Common Core standards ‚ÄĒ especially among parents with school-age children. Indeed, since just November of last year, the shallow ‚Äúsupport‚ÄĚ that did exist for the controversial education scheme has plunged dramatically, a new survey showed. Other polls found similar results.
The latest nationwide public opinion data on national standards, released by Rasmussen Reports on June 26, represents another devastating blow to Common Core proponents ‚ÄĒ primarily Big Business, special interests, and the Obama administration. Despite pouring billions of dollars in taxpayer and special-interest funding into deceptive marketing gimmicks and propaganda to build support for Obama‚Äôs education ‚Äúreform‚ÄĚ schemes, opposition to Common Core...
Ah, you pointed out a left winger's opinion of the program which is fine by the way. I was just thinking of the complaints they had about it. So it is well that you pointed out my oversight on what was in over-glowing review the article. By the way, in the main u s news and world report article on common core you will find what some of the people were complaining about. Also again on that other article which was fairly good on giving the details on common core.
I do not remember any requirements in common core to say how great the LGBT arguments were. The only thing I saw on SermonAudio was about a school superintendent who took it upon himself to include strange material into the students studies, and that had nothing to do a common core. As I think I pointed out in that thread what would that have to do prepairing students for college and for the workplace?
I haven't looked at everything over on the Common Core subject matter, so if you can find where it is officially supported various immoral activities, please point it out to all of us! I have very little doubt that evolution may get put somewhere in the science curriculum , but I'm not sure of that. Good reason to homeschool while using common core as a guideline.

ok here we go
"What‚Äôs not warranted is the welling hysteria: from right-wing alarmists, who hallucinate a federal takeover of education and the indoctrination of a next generation of government-loving liberals..."
Not right wing alarmist, it is parents who care about their kids and don't like the left wing pro LGBT and other liberal agenda being pushed in the curriculum. Plus he implies that it is too hard. The reason it is hard is because they are throwing out the way you and I learned math and put in its place some convoluted system where right answers don't matter, really math is an exact science but now we say the correct answer isn't important? The problem is it is dumbing down the system not improving it. Grades,a measure of your performance, are not important. Remember, the educators involved in this project left before it was finalized due to the direction it was going. Ask jpw about project 21 and CC, I am sure she will give you an earful. This is not heading us the right direction.
Now, your turn. please point out the errors in the article in the New American. Thanks
To re-quote, "As the grassroots uprising against the Obama administration-pushed nationalization of schools continues to grow, public sentiment is quickly turning against the widely criticized Common Core standards..." They are the only place I found this commentary! It is partisan!!! But, according to Wikipedia, the founder quit because it was becoming biased towards the Democrats.

Ah, UPS, please point out the errors in the article I put up from NY Times.
Ah, Jim, please point out the Rasmussen poll connection to the Birchers. False accusations mean nothing, and of course are unbecoming a Christian. The Cause above all, eh?

Nice try with the old guilt by association gimmick, Jim, but if you'd bothered to pay attention, you'd see the New American was referencing the Rasmussen Reports poll. Rasmussen is not the least bit John Birch. Keep trying, though. We need the senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
The NYT, their motto is all the views that is fit to print. A newspaper filled with distortions and half truths and they wonder why their subscriptions keep going down. The New American, on the other hand, has proved to be a reliable source. As usual liberals are Machiavellian and believe the ends justifies the means when it comes to distorting the news. There are exceptions but they only prove the rule.
