In Case You Missed It — I joined Chad Adams on his show, What Matters, last Friday.
You can find the segment I’m in at around the 35 minute mark.
Quick rundown of what we talked about:
Next, Chad speaks to LadyLiberty1885, AP Dillon. They delve into the issue of Common Core. Dillon shares the Trump “un-tweet” after his win in New Hampshire where he first stated he was against Common Core and later said it was great. Chad says the way to get under Trump’s skin, from what he’s heard, is to ask him the details of his policies. Andrea says the groundswell of support for both Trump and Sanders has come from Americans overall dissatisfaction with established politicians. Chad asks why she thinks DPI won’t drop the curriculum. Andrea says DPI and Superintendent Atkinson have bought into the idea full scale. She tells Chad two lawmakers have said the commission who looked at removing mathematics from the Common Core curriculum said Supt. Atkinson told them the issue would be addressed again in March. Chad asks if the hesitation is a fear of not receiving federal money. Andrea says the lawmakers need to take a long look at Common Core and get the spine to eliminate it. She tells Chad perhaps lawmakers should be changed as frequently as a baby’s diapers. Very nice!
