Dear Schools, Teachers, and Administrators: Your politics have no place in our kid’s classrooms.
Not only is it state policy to keep personal politics out of the classroom, it’s literally common sense. These are your students, not your acolytes. Continue reading
Ohio Governor John Kasich has 2016 presidential aspirations and was on FOX news this past Sunday, where he towed the pro-Common Core line. See the video clip.
In the interview on FOX, Kasich accused Conservatives of using Common Core to score political points. Kasich also runs with the Obama canard: Continue reading
If there’s one thing everyone opposing Common Core has seen, it’s the talking point from the supporters saying that opposition to Common Core is “political”.

I’ve documented the ‘politicizing’ here in North Carolina – Rep. Cotham is one of the bigger offenders, but this talking point is a nationwide effort. Common Core supporters have a well-funded PR/messaging machine and they all tow the latest talking point lines.
Missouri Education Watchdog (MEW) has an article up documenting the latest shift.

More ‘politicizing’ from Rep. Tricia Cotham. cotham core politicizing
She sat on the Common Core Legislative Research Committee, yet continues to ignore the reality of these flawed, experimental standards and the public outcry on Common Core. Instead, she insists on attempting to demonize opposition.
During debate of the bill (SB 812) to repeal and replace Common Core in North Carolina, State House Rep. Cotham (D-100) continued to politicize the measure. She even invoked the President’s name in order to try and politicize the vote:
Cotham just politicized the Common Core again while saying it has become political. She just threw in Obama. #StopCommonCore #NCGA

The only ones ‘politicizing’ Common Core are the supporters, in particular in North Carolina it appears to be mainly elected officials. Yet another example – Senator Jeff Jackson who serves Mecklenburg County who was appointed at the beginning of May.
Voters in that area might want to remember this moment, where Mr. Jackson just marginalized parents, teachers and students across the state in an attempt to score political points:
Just voted against repealing Common Core. This bill was about conservative politics, not sound education policy. #ncga #ncpol
