In the last few weeks, I’ve been publishing the public feedback for North Carolina from 2010 that CCSSO and NGA refused to release. These “10,000 comments” have been used by proponents in an arguably dishonest manner to point to a vetting process for the standards.
Here are the articles I’ve put up with comments published in them to date:
The Infamous “10,000” Comments On Common Core
10,000 Comments: NC Overall Feedback
10,000 Comments: NC Overall Feedback on K-5 ELA Standards
Here is another point of reference on these “10,000 comments”:
Take a look at the summary of “public feedback” posted on the Core Standards website. It is grossly misleading. First of all, calling the feedback “public” is wrong: the organizers of the standards would not make public the nearly 10,000 comments they say they received from citizens. The summary quotes 24 respondents–less than 1/4 of 1 percent of the total–selectively chosen to back up their interpretation of the results.

Today I have put together grade 6+ writing and language comments, as well as a section where people could leave more overall feedback on the ELA portion that might not have been covered in previous questions.
The first two, writing and language, only had 3 or 4 comments each. The third section that allowed for more overall commentary on the ELA had a flurry of comments.
NC Feedback – 6+ writing
NC Feedback – 6+ language
NC Feedback – More Overall ELA comments
In the 3rd set of comments above, there are a few excerpts I would like to share:

Enterovirus is in North Carolina, but WHERE?
WHERE?? => NC DHHS Confirms Three Additional Enterovirus D68 Cases (Oct. 7th, 2014) http://t.co/dVGfLCe8a3 #ncpol #ncgov #enterovirus

I’ve been fielding a lot of emails and Facebook messages on Enterovirus. This virus appears to be causing paralysis in some of the kids who have succumb to it and a 4-year-old New Jersey boy recently died from it. Parents are rightfully concerned. Continue reading
Opting out of high stakes testing has begun sweeping through the states. More and more parents are choosing to have their child refuse the tests. This movement has started to hit North Carolina. [Related: Testing Opt Out Movement Comes To NC]
The number of questions I get from parents about opting out of testing in North Carolina has exponentially been increasing over the last few months. It’s time to do a run-down of what parents in North Carolina can do about the tests in our state.

The Obama administration’s lawlessness regarding our border security resulted in a tidal wave of illegals coming over our Southern border. The Obama administration then parceled these illegal immigrants out to the states; including many children.
On behalf of these illegal kids, the Left of the Left are stepping up integration efforts via complaints to the DOJ. This is a likely overture to impending lawfare.

Money drives the Common Core. Money spent on it and money to be made from it. Gates has dropped over $2.6 million into the National PTA. So when a local PTA official in Ohio said the following, I chuckled and shook my head:
During the legislature’s Common Core hearings, Rep. Andy Thompson, R-Marietta, the sponsor of the bill to eliminate the standards, has pressed several pro-Common Core witnesses about their affiliations, influences and funding — focusing particularly on whether money came from the Gates Foundation.
