Say it ain’t so, Gene! The legendary bass player and reality TV star came out Monday night in enthusiastic support of Common Core. Forget any of those stories you’d heard about life on the road with KISS; this is some seriously shocking stuff.

Uh oh. The lapdogs at NBC did a report on Common Core and managed to convince Gene Simmons that it’s good for education?

Simmons might have caught NBC’s report, but he must have missed all of the education experts who participated in the #StopCommonCore Twitter rally, as well as Twitchy CEO Michelle Malkin’s smackdown of Common Core cronyism — not to mention the examples of bizarre “number sense” math problems, context-free social studies exercises and sexually graphic literature recommendations. Parents and teachers don’t like Common Core, and they lined up to shout it out loud.

This is getting kind of creepy. COMMON CORE. COMMON CORE. COMMON CORE. At least Simmons is willing to listen.

It’s fairly well known that Simmons was a teacher, but this was back in the ’70s.

Kudos to Simmons for being open minded, but before he tweets again about the wonders of Common Core, we have some homework for him:
