Retired Generals Supporting the Common Core

In an odd turn that doesn’t necessarily make any sense, a few retired Generals were in Raleigh, North Carolina to offer their support for the Common Core. While many of us respect the service of our military men, I’m not sure why their word should carry any more weight than anyone else’s.

Anyway, several states have already dumped the Common Core and several more states are now considering doing the same… including Read more […]

Sure, it’s in the school library, and kids are free to read it, but it’s not required. Besides, it’s not like the biography contained false information.
