Common Core Standards (aka: Common Core State Standards, CCSS)
By now many know what CCSS is, and wonder why our Wyoming legislators and the governor insisted on ramming SF-104 through faster than a speeding bullet. CCSS is nothing more than a Socialist’s education dream come true (some even go so far as to call it the Communist’s dream).
SF-104 was needed to get the Superintendent of Public Instruction (SPI) out of the way. Why? Simple, because the current SPI focuses on our children’s best interests, rather than holding out a leech’s hand asking (or begging) the federal government for more money like many of our state legislators and the governor. The SPI duties have been gutted that the position is of mere appearance for the sheeple’s consumption. The SPI can no longer be in a position to vote for what’s best for our children. These duties have been turned over to the governor’s hand-picked Education Czar, referred to as a Director. And one of the first responsibilities that governor Mead requested was to go to Washington D.C. and ask for a waiver, which is the pathway for CCSS.
