Also unbelievable? The sneering contempt was offered up by the Sun Sentinel newspaper as well.

Bias? What bias? That is what the Sun Sentinel thinks of you, Common Core-opposing parents. While it was a cartoon penned by Chan Lowe, the Sun Sentinel backed it enough to promote it via its Twitter feed.

Of course, such sneering contempt is par for the course. How dare you disagree with your “betters,” rubes?

Indeed. If fighting for your children and their education is zealotry, then count us in.

Happy warriors unite!

But then we’ve been brainwashed to believe that our children wont be competitive if they don’t attend public schools.

  • Elizabeth

    I live in a town where about 90% of the high school seniors go on to college. Not only do many teachers in this district vehemently oppose the CC standards but our superintendent does as well and he’s not afraid to be vocal about his opposition. You can take that nose picking little kid and take a look in the mirror you whack job lefties.

    • D-dubs

      God Bless your Superintendent! Margie tweeting above has it correct and so does your superintendent….you need to flood these propagandists with tweets, letters, emails, and calls for them to make a change. Sadly, only a few on our side will do it, so the status quo remains. Unless you live in a great town such as yourself apparently! I may have to move my family to where you live because there are only a few people in my town that speak up against this mess.

      • Elizabeth

        My town gets very little funding from our state. Most of the state and federal dollars on education go to the 4 urban cities here. Millions and millions spent on bright, shiny new schools and the graduation rates are still poor, let alone the percentages that move on to college. Common Core will not fix generational welfare, kids with no fathers around and general apathy from whatever parent or guardian is in charge of these kids. Common Core is designed to make the superior performing schools compete on the same crappy level as the underperforming ones. Redistribution of failure!

        • D-dubs

          Point proven!! I’ll stay in my blue-ish/purple state for now…..maybe we could get some more good Conservatives to move here to turn ours a little more red! 😉

      That’s one of the problems. I’m seeing any teachers stand up against this. This takes the individual, the experience of each unique teaching method and personality out of the equation. It’s as though these teachers schooling and training was for naught.

      And when my daughter breaks down crying because even the teacher doesn’t know how to teach the math curriculum then we have problems. My daughter understands the concept of math, she understands that there is but one answer and multiple ways of coming to the solution. What she doesn’t understand is the lack of formulation coupled with the concept of no wrong answers.

      For those of us that require a two parent income and cannot afford a private school…..this is a travesty.

      • Elizabeth

        I certainly feel for you. My last child will be graduating in June so what little I have seen with the CC, has not really had any impact on my kid. It’s certainly not all the teachers in my district but I was truly surprised to hear about so many who are frustrated with CC. I spoke to one teacher earlier this year whose own child is breaking down on an almost nightly basis. She’s beyond frustrated. Mind you – this is a person who’s been teaching for 20 years and even she can’t help her own child navigate this BS!

      • Julius500

        They give large chunks of money to some teachers to be “trainers” to teach common core–5 figure increases in salary. Those teachers in my state will also coincidentally be attesting legislative hearings in support of common core. Also many teachers are afraid to say anything. Some in my area have been fired for it.

        As for the impersonal nature of Common Core– this is Bill Gates brainchild. We’ve decided to let a software tycoon with Aspergers syndrome remake our education system. I can’t wait to have my accountant give me a sexy new bob haircut.

        Gates is heavily involved with non-profits that are pushing Common Core. Of course Microsoft will benefit from all the costs associated with computerized testing for common core.

          Pretty much, they’re Animal Farm types– if someone says it’s “progressive,” it must be good, and if it’s “Tea Party/whatever,” it must be evil.

    Too hard? I don’t think I’ve EVER heard a parent say it was too hard. The complaints are that it’s NOT educating their kids to think, problem solve, comprehend, they complain about the too personal data mining and storing of data to be shared with others.. they complain about the endless standardized rote testing that takes time away from actual learning and ties the hands of teachers (who might otherwise be excellent teachers) and it opens the door for any nit-wit to instruct your kids.. ..there are a myriad of issues.. but “too hard” is not one of them.. if anything it’s not challenging kids to better themselves.

        • A-Train

          I don’t understand it one bit. My buddy and I were the only Catholics in our class, and when we’d hear this we’d just look at eachother like ‘what the hell is he talking about?’. We’d bring it up, in class, (this was from teachers, btw), and they’d just brush it off like we didn’t know what we were talking about. Kicker was, we live in a heavily Catholic area (well, at least the west-side of the city was), and they were older adults.

          • thedumbblonde

            When my kids get it (which isn’t often since we moved to Savannah-lots of Catholics and other assorted zanies ;), they just say “Well, we sort of invented that Christianity thing” and move on.

    • Diggur

      Very well said.

      We live in a VERY conservative state, but when my daughter started college about seven years ago she had teachers telling her that there was no such thing as God, and trying to indoctrinate her as an atheist. Now I ask you, if you can’t push a Christian ideology on students because the of separation of church and state, then why can an atheist ideology be pushed on them? Common Core is teaching that the founding fathers were terrorists. Isn’t that enough reason to be very afraid of how they’re indoctrinating our children?

  • A-Train

    so the wife and I were thinking of doing a type of private-homeschooling business, catered towards more ‘traditional’ curriculum, instead of propaganda. Nothing like big $ private/Catholic schools, but more ‘down home’ style.

NO argument they ever become embroiled in has ever NOT boiled-down to their perception that they are so much smarter than everyone else. Their lack of salient points for the defense of Common Core standards is absent, so they go back to the basics they know best…name-calling, derogatory inferences, etc.

            It hasn’t always been called Common Core. For many years we’ve just called it Public Education. It has been getting worse by the year, and they’ve been changing the curricula and history books to fit their agenda for many years now. Private education and home schooling have always produced better educated children, and more productive members of society. That’s why the wealthy always choose private schooling for their children. Public school has been tainted by unionization, government ineptitude, and most recently government indoctrination.

      But people here keep saying we need to oppose common core “for the children”!

      • Ralph_Gizzip

        It’s not “for THE children”. It’s “for OUR children”. See the difference?

        • Bathing Suit Area

          The difference being that you don’t care about anybody else’s children?

          • Ralph_Gizzip

            Anybody else’s kids are none of my business just as my kids are none of yours. But your side of the aisle seems to think everybody else’s business is YOUR business. Sorry, bucko, but you couldn’t be more wrong.

    Stupid is as stupid does! I’ll compare my IQ to theirs any day of the week!

    I wouldn’t use the Sun Sentinel to line a bird cage or wrap a dead fish. Floridians are in real trouble as their state turns purple. The Yankee carpet-baggers are at it again.

    I haven’t actually read anything much on common core other than what I see here on twitchy, but from what I’ve gathered from reading the comments here for a while, the complaints are:

    – Textbooks sometimes have typos and editing errors, which none of them ever did before.
    – Kids hate having homework, when they all used to love it.
    – The lessons are too hard and introducing concepts that kids aren’t ready for.
    – The lessons are too easy and are dumbing kids down.
    – Obama!
    – Kids should be taught critical thinking instead of just given answers to accept.
    – Kids should just be memorizing things by rote instead of learning methods to find the answers.
    – It’s confusing them with too many alternative methods of doing things instead of just showing one way that’s simply right.
    – It’s forcing them into a one size fits all method instead of providing customized alternatives.
    – It’s too focused on not hurting anyone’s feelings so no answer is ever wrong.
    – Here’s a photo of a crying child, because Common Core hurt her feelings!
    – Benghazi!
    – It’s indoctrinating mindless obedience to authority.
    – It’s undermining proper patriarchal authority, teaching them a lack of respect.
    – It’s too focused on boring book work, leaving no time for art or physical exercise.
    – There’s too much time wasted on arty farty stuff and not enough on the three Rs.
    – You can make lame puns from the name like calling it “Commie Core”.
    – It’s too socialist and communist.
    – It’s not as good as how European and Chinese children learn math.
    – There’s too much focus on teaching to standardised tests to improve the school’s stats.
    – There’s not enough competition between schools.
    – It’s using different terminology from when I was a kid.
    – It’s too hard for parents even to understand children’s math homework.
    – Proponents of it are calling us stupid and saying we can’t understand it.

    Did I miss any?

    • CrusadaB

      Of course your moniker is bathing suit area…you probably have your hands down there right now. Doh!

    • ltneid

      You only had Benghazi once and never even brought up the Department of Education.

  • Ya Dont Say?

    Sadly, the effects of commoncore will BE the very picture that paper promoted. Mother who can’t spell and kid picking nose. yeah…it’s already out there

    So do you subcribe to the Sun Sentinel? Do you patronize their advertisers? Unless you’re willing to deal with them appropriately, well, enjoy!

  • PTripp

    The Sun-Sentinel used to be the more conservative South Florida paper. Now it’s best for puppies, bird cages, and filling the gaps around your window A/C.

  • LittleRoot_48

    What else would anybody expect from a rag like the “Sun Slantinal?”

  • LittleRoot_48

    I have a little cartoon that came out during the Clinton campaign back in the 90’s. It shows a teacher holding up a sign that reads” Teechers for Clinton.” I am a retired teacher and left the teachers union when I got tired of the campus rep berating me for refusing to put a Clinton/Gore sign in my yard.
