Al ‘Resist We Much’ Sharpton Lends Us His Extensive Academic Experience On Common Core Tests

Rev. Al ‘Resist We Much’ Sharpton has summoned from his extensive experience in academics to defend Common Core’s high-stakes testing.

Yes, that’s right, we should all be listening to a man who can’t even read a teleprompter.


That sound you hear? It’s Common Core supporters cracking open a bottle of something really stiff after seeing that video and reading this article:

The opening to the NY Post article; emphasis added:

Supporters of the state’s rigorous Common Core tests have a surprising new ally: the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Sharpton on Friday blasted the state teachers union as irresponsible for urging parents not to allow their kids to take the upcoming standardized exams in math and English.

I’m opposed to a widespread opt-out without real dialogue . . . If you lose federal funding, what happens to those kids?” Sharpton told The Post at the National Action Network convention in Midtown.

Government cheese! Whatever will states do without that Government cheese!  Nanny Sharpton is worried.

Real dialogue? What rock as the Rev. Al been under?

    Al sounds just like he was educated under Common Core, doesn’t he? He definitely never learned Critical Thinking.
