Reader Responds to DESE’s Survey Monkey on Missouri Learning Standards aka Common Core State Standards
A reader attempted to leave remarks on DESE’s survey about the Missouri Learning Standards aka Common Core State Standards and sent me this message. It is reprinted with his permission:
In the survey, the document that comes up when selecting “Missouri Math Standards” is entitled Common Core Standards. Does that mean we still have common core math?I tried to use the survey for comments but DESE has once again made the process so difficult it is almost impossible.
I tried to comment on mathematics. In order to do that one must pick a specific topic from a list of about 20. Then select a grade level to advance in the survey.DESE must be declawed. It is absolutely appalling that they have so much power. HB1490 has very little to stop this Government take over and indoctrination of our children.Capital Reports from Kurt Bahr and John Wieman indicate millions will be allocated to K12 and high education. I asked them both where that money would go and as of yet no answer.Why would more money be channeled to DESE if in fact that’s where it will go?I wanted very much to be there tomorrow but several previous commitments make that impossible. I know you will put the results out for us to see.Joe Tortorici
