How many false statements, tea party smears and general bile can one fit into 1 minute and 23 seconds?
Watch @Fitzsimon make an ass of himself on #APUSH with a fountain of smears and rhetoric. http://t.co/SKgFYBQJU2 #nced #ncpol

It’s clear from the moment he opens his mouth, Fitzsimon knows NOTHING about APUSH. Reminds me of the type of crap News and Observer put out on APUSH. Alternatively, Fitzsimon does know APUSH is seeing a radical, leftist swing which is why he politicized criticism of it to death in less than a minute.

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.
