Mad as Hell and Not Going to Take Common Core Anymore

It’s been too long since the last post, but, apparently, the Tspelczechquer is ringing up traffic for the opt-out movement. Good.

Now it’s time to get our states and schools to opt out of Common Core. Why?

It wasn’t created by teachers.

It’s not a state-led initiative, no matter what Coach Arne Duncan would like you to believe.

It’s driven by a desire to sell flawed tests that schools can’t afford.

It’s terribly flawed, especially the K-3rd grade standards.

It’s “architect” – College Board’s David Coleman – is an arrogant so-and-so who doesn’t “give a $hit” about your kids’ personal opinion. Any true teacher would tell you otherwise.

It’s supported by Bill Gates, the Wal-Mart family, and most every state’s Chamber of Commerce. (Look at all of the educational experience there!)

Hell, even the venerable Louis C.K. realizes that Common Core is killing our kids’ love of learning.

It’s time to go all Howard Beale, people.
