QUOTES OF THE WEEK:

“Brat says, Common Core “violates the teacher-pupil relationship, just as Obamacare violated the doctor-patient relationship.”
– Daily Caller, Meet the Freshman who Defeated Eric Cantor​

“The PARCC test is neither valid nor reliable as a measure. And the reason for that is that it has never been given to a large population. So we’re paying to have a private testing company norm their instrument on the backs of Illinois students. That’s a big problem.”
– Washington Post, ​A damning account of one state’s Common Core testing initiative

 

“The uptick in homeschooling has become a trend across the nation over the past couple of years, even in states like New York and California,” Wright said. “Americans have rejected the Common Core initiative because they are tired of unaccountable federal bureaucracy, especially when it comes to their child’s education, and because they are seeing first-hand the poor quality and content of the Standards that are meant to prepare children for the workforce instead of giving them a well-rounded, superior education.”
