CCSS, Ferguson, murder, and undeserving children

I couldn’t agree more with Ken on this. He hit the nail on the head with this. Common Core does nothing but put profits in people’s pockets. We need to stop this shameful abuse of ALL students. I have no doubt that in a hundred years, people will look at this period of time as an end to the abuses that were inflicted on the parts of society that deserve way more than they are receiving.

We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
