Private schools compete quite. They also cost much less per student than public schools. Common CoreRead More is being used to promote globalist propaganda. Agenda 21. ICLEI. America 2050. Project Syndicate. Climate change. ALL tools to merge this country with all the rest including 3rd world under U.N. control.

Where did you get this garbage? Common Core is a non-government initiated plane to help our kidsRead More compete better down the road. It is about improved education, something you apparently could have used in the past.
Gwydion Myrddin November 25, 2013 at 08:50 am
one of my closest friends is a teacher in another state so she is intimately involved with thisRead More whole concept...Common Core is to help bring our kids up to the standards of the rest of the world...Of the developed countries, we spend more on prisoners than education...With charter or private schools, we are in danger of agendas other than education being put into place (IE: Military, Religious, etc)...

The Teapublican Pols are more than eager to keep their core base as uneducated as possible. TheyRead More want them just bright enough to tune into Fox-Non-News & to dial into a Rush Limbaugh show. They are without argument the anti-science party & with all the plots to align the bible as a textbook to "teach the controversy" that of course to any educated person that is not teaching as much as it as preaching. There is no wonder that the more education a voter has the more likely they vote Democrat(ic). American school children lag behind the world in every category. Don't believe me, & of course you won't if you are of the powdered wig & tri-cornered hat crowd but actually take the time to do some digging on the internet for facts & figures to support each of my claims.

This article would have better served the public by offering a more detailed account of theRead More essential elements of CC, and a bit of the history behind the move towards it, along with some perceptions of how it's been working out where it has been already in use. US journalism has, alas, become an echo chamber for folks who have strong opinions on everything, but who know very little about anything. This is an unfortunate thing for Patch to be reinforcing.
Cathy November 12, 2013 at 08:03 am
There is a lot of information avaliable on the internet about CC, both good and bad. We no longerRead More need to rely upon one journalists postings. But it requires one to listen to those whose political agenda, perceived or not, are opposite to one's own. Comments suggesting political motivations when condemnation or support are wasted words... do your own research. Listen to your enemies. They may actually know something.

the HOMEWORK it is ridiculous! Kids now a days have to read in Kindergarten, really we went toRead More kindergarten and finger painted and took naps and I grew up smart and even went to college. What are they trying to do to these kids. That's why so many kids are diagnosed ADD or ADHD. Maybe it's the system not the kids.
Bill October 9, 2013 at 08:23 am
Kindergarten kids can learn to read and write just fine. No child has ever died of a littleRead More homework, as long as the time required to do it and the difficulty level are reasonable.

So do you want to pick the tomatoes and slaughter the hogs yourself? American businesses preying onRead More people in dire straights is what is bringing illegals here. How about addressing the problem from the top?

This article is a perfect example of trying to find some sliver of good news is a sea of bad news.Read More If you want to really understand FCAT 2.0 results in Florida please read this column: http://bit.ly/ZiwSa3 The problem is that in reading and writing, our public school students are below grade level. The standards set are low. You only need to get 50% of the questions correct to pass the FCAT. There is no state standard for FCAT 2.0 in writing.

This is school violence pure and simple. Parents must assume the responsibility of discipline forRead More their child and not some bully teacher or principal I attended Florida schools decades ago and saw and experienced much abuse mainly toward boys. What I learned from these criminals was hate, contempt, fear, feelings of rage and revenge and more violence but not ever respect. If I met one of those abusers today I would spit right into their dirty faces. If I picked up a two foot board and hit someone I would be charged and convicted of felony assault but these people get more brazen with time and get away with their crimes. It is illegal to strike a US prisoner, an animal, a mental health patient, and hazing is illegal as well, but it is ok to physically assault a child? We have perverts (male and female) and I personally know of some that you would never guess, that are employed in our schools and are allowed by law to indulge in their fetish because there is no legislation to protect our children in school. This is disgusting and indicative of a third world country, not the United States of America. It is unbelievable to me that this is still going on.

One of these days , Babak, we may meet. I know you don't like me. After we meet you will like meRead More even less. I can tell you don't have a single fan or supporter on any article you comment on. You are disliked by everyone. Your own dog probably hates you. You strike me as a wife, children, and animal abuser. What a pitiful, sorry existence on Earth you represent. You are the kind of person who has a yard I like to let my dog take a dump in and then leave it. Other than that, you are probably not a bad guy.
