We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

Common Core has serious, serious problems in content and implementation. The author who wrote theRead More post above is partly correct when she writes; states 'voluntarily' adopted the federal standards, but she fails to mention many volunteered under the threat of losing federal education dollars if they did not. Many states adopted the standards without ever having examined them or putting them to public debate either.....much like the Obamacare legislation Nancy Pelosi said we must first past 'it' in order to see what is in it. Are we not experiencing the fallout of such ludicrous and fallacious reasoning?? Some of the standards writers didn't even sign on off on the final product due to their concerns over low level and/or illogical rigor and content bias problems not to mention the serious and real legitimate concerns about student data privacy. Parent groups around the country are gathering real time examples of common core assignments, and fighting hard to protect their children from this egregious federal encroachment into the classroom. Please visit the following sights for more information about why Common Core is yet another federal government overreach unfriendly to the principles of liberty and freedom...and real education. We should not be on the Common Core bandwagon. education liberty watch.org www.eagleforum.org http://www.theeducationalfreedomcoalition.org/
