Sunday, November 24, 2013 we are

Decided to take it off Facebook.  I'm sure my friends appreciate my decision to do so.

Why I have sunk my teeth so deep into the Common Core States Standards (CCSS) issue?   My one and only is a 1.5 semesters away from graduating from LSU so why am I so concerned about what happens in Louisiana schools, right?

Well for starters, I have nieces and a nephew, two of whom are just beginning their schooling so I am concerned with what and how they will be taught.

Secondly, I view CCSS as just another cog in the wheel of the federal government gaining control over every aspect of our lives.

Too bad our state government doesn't see it this way. Guess the $$ signs have clouded their vision.

So, stick around.  I have a lot to say on the subject and as I continue to peel back the layers of this foul-smelling onion, I'm sure I'll have even more to say.
