ICYMI – What Matters for Friday, September 18, 2015

In case you missed it, I spoke to Chad Adams on his radio show yesterday on the Freedom Action Network. There’s a lot of talk about education and Common Core worth listening to before I’m on just after the 27 minute mark. Enjoy!

What Matters for Friday, September 18, 2015

How many videos does it take to explain how to do addition? Well, as Chad explains at the start of the show, if you’re talking about Common Core, at least six. That’s why the Academic Standards Review Commission who has spent a year reviewing Common Core standards for the state’s public schools is recommending scraping the way math is taught. Of course, that also means millions in tax dollars spent to train teachers on the overly complex teaching method will have been wasted.

Next, Chad speaks to LadyLiberty1885, A.P. Dillon. Chad asks A.P. right out of the gate if she is running for office. She says she just doesn’t have the time, but she has considered it. Chad tells her a lot of people probably just gave a collective sigh of relief. They have a great discussion on education – especially why the NCAE won’t release its membership numbers and the latest woes of the Wake County School System.

In the second hour, News14’s Tim Boyum joins Chad. He and Chad discuss the latest two General Assembly members who have said they will not be running for re-election. They also discuss WBTV’s Nick Ochsner’s story on Rep. David Lewis. You gotta’ listen because as Chad says, “it’s always fun when Tim’s on.”

Finally, do you shop online? Chad tells a great story about his Mother and her Christmas shopping habits. It’ll make you laugh and touch your heart at the same time.

Monday we head to Christmastown, U.S.A. for Mayor Monday when we speak to McAdenville Mayor Farrell Buchanan and we get the latest updates on Civitas with President Francis De Luca.
