Unionized Teachers in Pennsylvania are refusing to write college recommendation letters for students on account of a contract dispute with the District’s School Board.
And in New York, kids who opt out of Common Core testing are being forced to sit at their desks and do nothing for hours on end while other students, more obedient to the edicts of the great and bountiful state, take their mandated tests in “friendly numbers” math and “rewrite the Bill of Rights” civics.
Funny, isn’t it? How public schools will bend over backwards to accommodate Mohammedans and Transgendereds; but a few kids opting out of Common Core? Forget about it.
BTW: Jeb Bush is a huge fan of Common Core. Like a good progressive, Bush does not think the states can be trusted to educate their children; only bureaucrats in the US Department of Education are wise and caring enough to be entrusted with ensuring children are properly educated.
I want to hear their solutions for the hodgepodge of dumbed-down state standards that have created group mediocrity in our schools.” – Jeb “The Real Conservative” Bush
