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:

From the FOX article, a Pitt County official gave a statement saying it met Common Core ELA standards. Emphasis below is mine:

A spokesman for Pitt County Schools defended the lesson – noting that it came from a state-adopted supplemental workbook and met the “Common Core standards for English Language Arts.”

At Wake School Board Meeting, Sutton Compares Himself To Eric Garner (Video)

Never a shortage of drama with the Wake County School Board.

At the most recent meeting, board member Keith Sutton wore a t-shirt that said “#BlackLivesMatter” on it and launched into a long speech about how he was almost detained once at a past school board meeting so he knows what people like Eric Garner have gone through or something. No, not kidding.

A Tweet About NC’s Civics and Economics

A tweet from NC’s Superintendent, who is also President Elect of the CCSSO, caught my eye the other morning.

@DianeRavitch Your facts about NC Civics & Econ are incorrect. C&E standards adopted in 2010 & went into effect 2012. Multiple resources

— June Atkinson (@DrJuneAtkinson) December 8, 2014

The tweet from Atkinson is a reply to a story on Mississippi, which doesn’t discuss North Carolina whatsoever. Atkinson has proven to be twitter challenged, so I checked Ravitch’s latest tagged articles for North Carolina.

I thought the Atkinson tweet was a response to the article Ravitch did covering Atkinson’s latest machinations dealing with the hotly contested new APUSH framework (AP US History), but there adoption date of NC’s civics isn’t covered there or in the related article where Ravitch basically re-prints the News and Observer’s smear job. It would appear Atkinson’s tweet is a non-sequitor protestation of something Ravitch never said? YEP. Gee…Our schools are in the best of hands.
