Gov. Scott Walker Pushed By Tea Party, Conservatives To Abandon Common Core Standards

Gov. Scott Walker Pushed By Tea Party, Conservatives To Abandon Common Core Standards

Commented Nov 27, 2013 at 17:35:30 in Politics

“If you reject common core, just remember that when your kids have to take the SAT and other standardized tests to get into a university, the tests are based on common core standards.”

CenterMod on Nov 27, 2013 at 18:28:13

“Fair point. Whether the College Board uses the common core as standards or not, they do use common standards. Let's hope states don't put their own kids at risk by teaching to an unacceptable set of standards.”

Oil And Gas Industry Advocates Accused Of 'Hijacking' Texas Textbooks [UPDATE]

Commented Nov 21, 2013 at 23:42:02 in Green

“As a former textbook salesman I will tell you that textbook companies used to spend millions in trying to win textbook adoptions in Texas. Now many are not willing to rewrite their books just to suit the whims of Texas right wingers. The fact that only one company submitted a textbook for Environmental Science speaks volumes.”

“Good. I hope that's a trend that only grows stronger.

Personally, as a business owner, I am as much concerned where an applicant received his education as I am about their academic success. I'd hire someone with a mediocre academic record from Massachusetts or from UCLA before I'd even consider anyone educated in Texas or similar red states. I will not, under any circumstances, hire anyone with a degree from P.H. College or Hillsdale or any of those religiously affiliated colleges other than one of the big old schools like Notre Dame.

So if you got the bulk of your education in Texas, or at a small private conservative/religious college, don't even bother to send me a resume. It'll be round-filed instantly.”

“Well, they may as well get over it. President Obama is the first, but I guarantee you he won't be the last. They need to get over it or move to another country. But, I don't think another country wants them either.”

“Kids in the biz are often home schooled and don't get the sex ed training in school that warns about this kind of thing. Part of sex ed in schools trains kids how to stay safe and what to report. I taught sex ed curriculum to 11 and 12 year olds in public schools and there is a way to arm kids against sex offenders.”

“Never leave your kid alone on a set. SAG rules state that a parent or guardian must be within earshot of their kid on a set at all times. I've seen parents drop kids off on a set and ask a total stranger (me) to keep an eye on them! Just because I had a kid on set doesn't mean I could keep an eye on their kid(s) too.”

“Poor Harry Wittington had to have another jaw surgery several years ago for continuing pain from the shooting. They had to remove three teeth in the process. His injury was way underplayed as the man is still suffering today.”
