You know after Duane Allmans death, things changed. Most people don't know Greg Allman was good but would never be Duane.
Most people also don't know Dicky Betts sang almost all their hits from rambling man to almost every ballad.

Congratulations Vermilion Parish for making national news on common core "Pimp's and Ho's". Is this the kind of shit we have to subject our kids too? It's bad enough we have to hear Ebonics from the uneducated gangster type individuals, but now our kids have to learn about it! I personally manage 16 employees and will not hire someone that comes in for an interview and talks slang, nor will I put p with it when spoken too. I guess that's why the welfare system is overloaded. Good luck parents.
Get a load of this crap.
According to the rappers, kids of this age should know what a pimp is and have offered to come to vermilion to explain it to the kids.

Quietly initiated five years ago by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers, the first stage was to develop and then implement rigorous new standards in English and math, with an emphasis on critical thinking, reading complex materials (nonfiction especially), and learning core math concepts rather than rote memorization. Common Core does not dictate what books or topics a school can cover—teachers still design their own courses and pick their own reading lists—but rather sets specific expectations for what students should be able to do. For seventh-grade English, for instance, students should be able to compare and contrast a written passage with an audio or video version of the same material, analyzing how the different formats affect the impact of the words.

Common Core: designed tests to measure whether students are actually learning at a higher level when faced with these new academic standards. Officially named the "Common Core State Standards Initiative,” Common Core is a massive effort to transform K–12 education in America by creating tough new standards for what kids should know and be able to do at each grade level—and tough tests to go along with them. What are these protesters, teachers afraid of? That the ignorants they are showing by not supporting Tough Standards of Education is instilled in their child or children they teach. This is Louisiana after all.

Ignorants= ignorance
That is what some teachers fear when confronting other teachers who promote a concept that neglects basic spelling.

Anti-Common Core parents and teachers at Saturday rally:'We're not misinformed'

More than 200 parents and teachers rallied in front of the Louisiana Department of Education in Baton Rouge on Saturday to implore the state's elected education officials to block the educational standards known as Common Core.

The protest was organized by the Stop Common Core Coalition of Louisiana and hosted by Mary Kass, mother of three and co-founder of the Greater New Orleans Tea Party. Kass kicked off the series of speeches Saturday with a dogged criticism of the standards and their implementation in Louisiana.

"We are not misinformed. We know what the Common Core State Standards Initiative is. We just reject it," said Kass, a statement that would become the theme of the day's event.

Kass said the standards don't "recognize the individual potential of every child" and were implemented "without regard to creativity and curiosity" or the non-verbal learning level of the student.

She then called on the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, or BESE, to opt out of the standards, and criticized Gov. Bobby Jindal for signing on to the standards in 2009 when they had not been completely formulated.

The Common Core State Standards, or CCSS, took effect in public school and some private school classrooms this fall. Related testing, formulated by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), kicks in during the 2014-2015 school year -- unless lawmakers pass legislation forcing the state to opt out of the program.

The new legislative poster child of the anti-Common Core movement is state Rep. Cameron Henry, a Republican from Metairie who sits on the House Committee on Education.

Henry, who spoke at Saturday's rally, announced last Monday he planned to file a series of bills next spring to halt Common Core and keep PARCC from ever being implemented.

At the rally, Henry recited a letter sent to Jindal last week requesting a meeting on the issue. He also urged those in the crowd to call the governor's office and urge Jindal to take the meeting.

After his speech, Henry said he continues to work on the draft legislation. The proposed bills still include measures to shift curriculum-setting powers from BESE to the Legislature, a proposal vehemently opposed by some of his fellow lawmakers including Senate Education Committee Chairman Conrad Appel, R-Metairie.

He also responded to the worries that some schools may not have the necessary equipment, such as computers, to administer the exams next year or teach to the test this year.

"In the year 2013, there is no legitimate reason not to have a computer in a child's hands," White said, noting the state has offered schools special contracts to purchase such equipment in bulk.

At this time, 86 percent of Louisiana's students attend schools that are "technology ready," White said. It is up to the school districts in the other 14 percent to bring themselves to the minimum standards, he said.

"The important thing, though, is that we recognize in our state that other states are stepping up to ensure that their graduates are competitive. Right now, our standards are not competitive," White said. "If we don't do that, as other states are doing, we're really hurting our state's prospects and the prospects of our future leaders."

Nine year olds in no way should be subjected to this kind of rhetoric.
I can assure you. It will be removed.
You have Nine year olds selling crack in the Brown Projects, which all so attend Louisiana Public Schools and the way the person your response was to, can't see them being any better. Looks like it's all a matter of Right Wing @ Left Wing POLITICS
