Common Core Protesters

Our TV channel here in SC was showing people in the capital protesting against the Common Core standards. There were about 100 people, some carrying hand-printed signs. One of which didn't spell "government" correctly (left out that first "n". Yeah, they don't need no stinkin' guvment' interferin' in their lives.
Nothing big, but it cracked me up.

1. I saw that on Thomas Robert's show,

They showed the woman holding that sign. If only he'd pointed out to his guest how protesters against education CAN'T SPELL.

2. There are a lot of progressive teachers opposed to Common Core

It's not only right wingers who hate it.

3. a lot of progressive parents oppose it as well.

Parents and teachers know our kids are individuals. Law makers who sit at their desk all day think all kids are exactly the same.
