NC’s #SB812 Replace Common Core Moves Forward

The North Carolina General Assembly’s House passed SB 812 and is sending it to the Senate for concurrence. Should the Senate concur and pass it, the bill then should go to the Governor.

#SB812 passes the #NCGA House and heads to the Senate. NC is one step closer to returning real education to NC! #StopCommonCore

#NCGA Rep. Glazier Clueless On Common Core

We’ve got another Common Core “politicizing” alert coming out of another legislators at the NC General Assembly. This time it’s Democrat Rep. Rick Glazier:
“If the bill is really to revoke the standards and replace them with North Carolina standards, that would be extremely destructive and very destabilizing,” said state Rep. Rick Glazier, a Democrat from Fayetteville and a former Cumberland County school board member. “But if all that’s happening is the (GOP) majority is patting the base on the head and just changing the name, then it’s a pretty fraudulent bill that won’t do much harm.”

But that still would be bad, he said, “because it sends a lack-of-stability message through a system that’s already struggling with upheaval.” – FayObserver 5/24/14

Exactly how would it be “extremely destructive and very destabilizing” to remove the fundamentally flawed and experimental standards from our schools, Mr. Glazier? I think Mr. Glazier is listening more to the money from the Chamber of Commerce than he is to the reality about Common Core.

To make a statement like that, it would require that Rep. Glazier is willfully politicizing this topic or that he lacks any real knowledge about Common Core. Tell me, who spoon-fed that talking point to you, because it’s very similar to ones we’ve heard from Rep. Marcus Brandon, Rep.Tricia Cotham and Sen. Josh Stein. Let’s not forget the NC Chamber of Commerce and The Raleigh Chamber either.

Reminder: Senators Stein implies you are racist if you oppose Common Core. Continue reading
