Nevada’s Common Core Turns into Huge Money Pit!

A new, online standardized test designed to test Nevada schoolchildren on Common Core standards has been a huge fiasco in its first year, with the vast majority of students unable to complete the test. The failure could expose the state to federal sanctions. Under No Child Left Behind, states are supposed to test children in grades 3-8 each year in mathematics and reading. At least 95 percent of students must take the tests, or else a state can face federal sanctions such as a loss of millions Read more […]

Common Core? Woman Banned from Facebook Yard Sale Group for Using Perfect Math

I’m no good at math, but you don’t have to be in order to understand why this is so utterly ridiculous. So, Penny Hayes from LaFayette, Georgia posted in a Facebook yard sale group offering bottles of laundry detergent. She was selling each bottle for 35 cents, or if you wanted to buy them in bulk, you could purchase a case of 48 bottles for a total of $12. A quick operation on a calculator (if you can’t do the math in your head) would yield an answer of .25 (that’s 25 cents) for each Read more […]

Common Core Tests Full of Glitches – Meet Boycotts Across the Country

The Common Core has been a travesty throughout the country and the more evidence that piles up the easier it becomes to stand against it. Sadly, out of some weird sense of duty or politics liberals and some Republicans continue to support the horrible mess…   The national rollout of new Common Core-aligned standardized tests is running into a series of embarrassing problems, as schools grapple with both technical glitches and a growing movement of hostile parents who refuse to let Read more […]

What 4th-Graders are Reading in the Common Core Obama Biography

I knew leftists were brazen. But I had no idea just how brazen they were. Here’s a couple of paragraphs from the Common Core approved Obama biography intended for fourth-graders: But some people said that Americans weren’t ready for that much change. Sure Barack was a nice fellow, they said. But white voters would never vote for a black president. Other angry voices were raised. Barack’s former pastor called the country a failure. God would damn the United States for mistreating its black Read more […]

Education Needs More Parental Involvement & Less Government Intrusion Says State Sen

Does the name Elbert Guillory ring a bell with anyone? Guillory was a black Democratic lawyer who was first elected to the Louisiana State House of Representatives in 2007. In 2009, he ran for the state senate and won. On May 31, 2013, he boldly stood up and declared that he was switching his party affiliation to the Republican Party because it was the political party of freedom and the Democratic Party was the party of the big government form of slavery. He recorded a video speech that explained Read more […]

Bill Nye: Only Science Deniers Oppose Common Core Curriculum

Bill Nye is that guy who’s not a scientist but plays one on TV. For the entertainment of little kids. For some reason, that’s all that’s needed to qualify him as some sort of authority on the subject of science, particularly when it comes to climate science and evolution (which isn’t even science). If you believe in fairy tales like evolution or manmade global warming or atheism, absolutely no credentials are needed to be considered an authority. Your beliefs qualify you sufficiently. When Read more […]

Foundation Predicts Common Core to Double Dropout Rates

Dropout rates are already a problem for many high schools across the nation. A friend of mine told me that he was glad that his son graduated high school since his school has a dropout rate of nearly 60%. Hopefully, most schools aren’t that bad, but I know that some are even worse. However, that could all change if a recent report is true. Researchers with the Carnegie Foundation and McKinsey Group believe that the Common core standards are set too high and that millions of students will fail Read more […]

Common Core Test Asks Kids About Global Warming

Following repeated requests from parents, the state of New York released the text of half the questions used in its new Common Core-aligned standardized tests. The test questions, used in tests for grades 3 through 8, include one question that encouraged students to cite evidence in favor of global warming. The eighth grade English test included several  short written pieces that students had to read and respond to in order to demonstrate English mastery. One such piece was an article originally Read more […]

Why You Should Avoid Sending Kids to Public Schools

I can’t count how many times I’ve written against today’s public school system. They aren’t institutions of learning any more. They’ve become the training centers for raising anti-American socialists and Common Core is one of their current brainwashing tools to accomplish it. Here are three more reasons why you should avoid sending your kids to public school. 1) More and more teachers are engaging in sexual practices with their students. I‘ve written about a number of them in the Read more […]

Surprise! Nation’s 2nd Largest Teachers Union Withdraws Support of Common Core

In what can only be described as a complete and utter surprise – the nation’s 2nd largest teacher’s union has withdrawn it’s support of the Common Core. Conservative activists have been decrying the insidious nature of the Common Core since its inception but mainstream liberals and moderates have generally been unwavering in their support. This latest reversal by one of the Common Core’s closest allies could prove to be the turning point in the battle against federalized education. If conservatives Read more […]

Common Core Equates George Washington to Palestinian Terrorists

How many times do I have to write about the problems discovered in Common Core teaching? This time it deals with Pearson Education, one of the leading companies that helps develop and train Common Core teaching. According to their website: “As the leading education services company, Pearson is serious about evolving how the world learns. We apply our deep education experience and research, invest in innovative technologies, and promote collaboration throughout the education ecosystem. Real change Read more […]

Common Core Doomed in North Carolina?

The Common Core is the Obamacare of education, and from its inception, was also doomed for failure. The failure is in the reasoning and enforcement of the common core. Over the years, our education quality in the US has been steadily declining – even as observers have been pointing to the destruction. Why have we been unable to slow the failing of our education system? Because all of our answers have been bigger government based solutions. And, as conservatives have been saying for years, these Read more […]
