Gene Simmons praises Common Core standards, gets an education

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:


Arrested curriculum development: Parent taken into custody at school forum for questioning Common Core standards

Michelle Malkin: My child’s Common Core-aligned Algebra book is crap

‘The Bluest Eye’ brings graphic depictions of rape, pedophilia to Common Core

Sixth-graders asked to ‘prune’ Bill of Rights from ‘outdated’ Constitution

Pics of the day! Common Core ‘in a nutshell’ or just nuts?

Michelle Malkin: ‘No coincidence’ NYT’s Bill Keller and Jeb Bush attacking my Common Core opposition

Are they game? Michelle Malkin willing to debate Jeb Bush, NYT’s Bill Keller on Common Core

Smackdown! Michelle Malkin takes on defenders of Common Core cronyism

Power of social media: Second Twitter rally aims to #StopCommonCore; Updated with resources
