The following is a guest post of a Facebook comment by Mark Cates of Buncombe county. Mr. Cates has given his permission for his comment to be re-posted on this site.
Buncombe County schools has a massively expensive ‘Food lab renovation’ on the table.

Well, the tide is turning on Common Core. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Demonizing the public, parents, teachers and kids to advance the Core has backfired big time. The PR/messaging behemoth behind Common Core needs a new line of attack.
It looks like the focus is now going after the experts who dared call out the flaws in the Core. At least for one New Hampshire guy.
@manateespirit Oh, I left one… Did you see the new shift? Going after Milgram not parents. Watch, Stotsky is next.

This is a bit ironic since prior to now, the powers that be behind the Core were doing their best to wipe out evidence of the Validation committee dissenters.
Advancing New Hampshire’s Public Education (ANHPE) has an article titled James Milgram’s dishonest critique of the Common Core math standards apparently written by Bill Duncan. Mr. Duncan goes after Dr. Milgram claiming the examples Milgram used in the Pioneer White Paper from 2010 called ‘Fair To Midling’ are flawed because… well, Duncan’s entire premise rests on the idea Milgram only used a portion of the standards and not the whole thing. This is a White Paper, Mr. Duncan. That comparison is called an example and is commonly used to represent a larger body of information because the rest is largely more of the same.
Let’s talk about dishonesty.
Dr. Milgram is a Mathematician.
Dr. Milgram is also a Professor Emeritus at Stanford University and is extremely well-known and respected. He was on the validation committee for Common Core and — clearly, someone thought he knew his stuff. For the love of Pete, his bio is on the NASA website.
Milgram’s out there for the world to see. Mr. Duncan? Not so much. Continue reading
Oppose Common Core? Buncombe’s school board doesn’t want to hear it. The board had previously made a deal to hear public comment on the issue, but to date hasn’t made good on that front.

That, is shutuppery. Parents in Buncombe county have the right to be heard. They should contact Chairman Rhinehart and ask this forum be scheduled post-haste. Continue reading
