2000 children in this district are not receiving the education the taxpayers are funding, your response, divert attention from the fact.Race To Nowhere says: Because Common Core requires standardized tests, schools face the burden of buying additional computers and updating textbooks to comply with this regulation.
Why would Springboro need to update their textbooks or want to have standardized education? Why would Springboro students need to learn what the other 45 states are learning? All we need to know is in the Bible and creationism. Springboro needs to come out of the bubble and realize there is an entire world around us.
Reading Topix postings for awhile, I can see a definite slant. Check out what the rest of the nation is saying about our school and current BOE. This is the nation that our kids are going to be living and working in. They need to be up to date and able to compete in STEM careers. Could a major dislike of the Common Core be that the science component is based on the evidence in science that includes and supports evolution, not creationism, which has no scientific validity?
Topix posters, step out of the Springboro Bubble and check out other view points that may differ from yours: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/24/spri...
Those 2000 children who are failing our program of studies deserve better than the back of your hand.
And if you bothered to look at a science book from today and one from 1963 you would see some changes vs what was accepted truth in 1963 and what passes for the latest and greatest we know today. The conceit to think that we are the absolute epitome of human development worries me for the future of these children.
