This morning, I spotted the news that Facebook was blocking a specific article by Sandra Stotsky. Stotsky was on the Common Core Validation committee and refused to sign off on the standards.

Gee, that would mean that a group of folks reported the link as dangerous and Facebook locked it down. Yes, I concur with the title of Missouri Education Watchdog’s article on this turn of events: We must be winning if this is what proponents are resorting to.
Missouri Education Watchdog sounded off:
