Yesterday, HB 1061 passed the House. The Chamber of Commerce Core was there making noise and fear mongering hoping to kill the bill. Did it work? Who wants to keep our schools and children prostrate to two D.C. trade groups and to a flawed, experimental set of standards?
Representative(s): Adams; Alexander; Baskerville; Bell, L.; Brandon; Carney; Cotham; Cunningham; Earle; Farmer-Butterfield; Fisher; Floyd; Gill; Glazier; Goodman; Graham, C.; Graham, G.; Hall, D.; Hall, L.; Hamilton; Hanes; Harrison; Holley; Insko; Jackson; Lucas; Luebke; Meyer; Michaux; Mobley; Moore, R.; Pierce; Reives; Richardson; Terry; Tine; Tolson; Wilkins; Wray
Every single one of them is a Democrat.
The only Democrats voting for HB 1061 were Brisson; Queen; Waddell.
Looks like the very people complaining about “politicizing” the standards have just drawn their own “politicizing” line in the sand… right over our children and their education. Common Core opposition should be prepared to be called racist here in NC. From yesterday’s vote, Rep. Brandon playing the Obama card:
Rep Brandon: We are doing this (stopping #commoncore) because…Obama. #hb1061 #haction #tcot #ccot #ncga

Flashback: Senator Parmon implies ya’ll are racists because if you oppose Common Core then you oppose Obama:
“Politicizing” #CommonCore => Parmon re: common core being dumped in NC…“This is about who’s in the White House,” http://t.co/CQCLdtlkSk — LL1885 – A.P. Dillon (@LadyLiberty1885) April 25, 2014
