While I think we SHOULD HAVE a common core/centralized standard of education I do agree with you that they shouldn't be reading what are basically glorified smut dime store pulp fiction romance novels.

I think that English classes should move away from literature & more toward technical writing/text books/blueprints/tech manuals/etc.

They should teach kids how to learn trades instead of reading goofy garbage like this.

Its ok to teach the Illiad or the Oddessey but this is stupid. This should be stripped from the curriculum.

What they need to do is -- they need to trim down the arts & humanities in the Common Core & focus more on technical stuff. If people want to pursue the arts or humanities that's fine, but they should do so on their own dime.

This from someone considered an expert. This professor was recruited to help develop Common Core. It is worth reading simply to get an idea of the true depth of the Common Core deception. Remember the OSSD is using and is a big proponent of this 'method'.
