It has only been one week since Heidi Huber gave her excellent presentation to a packed house at our March 4th meeting on the derivation, and current status of the (alleged) Common Core Standards.
Part of the presentation was focused on the yet to be developed tests that will forever change – and water down – the SAT and ACT, since the College Board is in charge of developing the tests.
Then, over the weekend, the Cincinnati Enquirer ran some op-ed pieces absolutely lauding the changes to the SAT. Maybe I should have said fawning. It was rather sickening in view of Heidi’s presentation.

A primary concern of Common Core opponents is the collection of private student information in a statewide longitudinal database and the sharing of the data between local, state, and federal governments as well as with hired contractors of these agencies. To allay concerns expressed by many Ohioans over this unprecedented access to student performance and demographic data, Representative Andrew Brenner introduced and the Ohio House passed HB 181, the Student Data Accountability Act. After a […] Continue reading

According to recent polling, the overwhelming majority of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. Congress now has an approval rating of only 12.9% and people are leaving the political parties in droves. As liberty-minded individuals, we often concern ourselves with the “unintended consequences” of government policy on the lives of citizens. When […] Continue reading
