I have seen a lot of HORROR in Common Core. Just this past week in Spokane Inlander Newspaper Randy Dorn our States Superindendant of Schools stated it is not helping and more kids dropping out, stressed unable to function or pass tests. It is a nightmare. Many parents across America hate it and teachers commanded to teach it. No longer do schools teach Cursive/Script Writing either and want a certain type of printing. The answers to math solution finding is grueling and makes no sense. High School required reading has become lewd and gross and much of history is re-written bigotry and propaganda. My own grandchildren refuse to do the work and two literally quit school over it and so long as Common core is required for GED they refuse to even get a GED. We as American people need to tell our Government NO we are not accepting Common Core. More and more schools are saying get back to the basics and the 3R's rather than all the foolishness the past 30 years and stop worrying so much about testing and more what a child has learned and understands. What is your thoughts on Common Core Education. Here is a link to a new recent teacher resigning her job over Common Core and why. http://conservativetribune.com/young-teacher-epic-letter/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=ConservativeHeadlinesEmail&utm_campaign=AM1&utm_content=2015-11-03

Common Core is just part of the full indoctrination that the government wants to perpetrate on our children. It has no chance of improving their education, it will only result in less education.

Exactly and we the people need to take our government, schools and lives back.

Yes it is very messed up. My daughter is going to home school her kids next year once she gets moved into her new home two miles from us next spring. My husband is a certfied school teacher and can home school as can I . They home schooled up until 4 years ago then her husband under pressure from his mom and others, moved and put them into public school. BIG mistake and he now knows it. Messed up his oldest daughter big time. And another. All his kids told him they did better, learned better, were happier with homeschool and they had a social life with 4-H and school and YMCA.
