Another Controversial Lesson Used In Support of Common Core

A vocabulary lesson using passages about Islam is making the rounds in the news today. The root of it comes from a viral video posted on Facebook by Dianne Lynn Savage. This assignment was given out at Farmville Central High School in North Carolina.

FOX’s Todd Starnes already has an article up:

Fitzsimon Beclowns Himself On #NCSPIN Over #APUSH

How many false statements, tea party smears and general bile can one fit into 1 minute and 23 seconds?

The list of arrests from the 10th, where protesters blocked traffic at the Streets at Southpoint, includes one protester arrested for attempting to incite a riot. On the 13th, one charge was for carrying a concealed weapon.

The list, via WNCN:
