Sorry GovernorGovernor Kasich is coming to West Chester on Monday, October 13 for a campaign stop.  I have gotten word that there plans to be a protest of this event, asking the Governor to clarify his position on Common Core.

Over the weekend, the Governor was on a Sunday show with WHIO in Columbus.  He was asked, if he supported the repeal of Common Core.  Again Governor Kasich didn’t answer the question and moved to his canned comments on ‘Higher Standards’.

I wrote a piece yesterday giving detailed explanation why Common Core are not the higher standards that Ohioans should be embracing.  Please read and share this article.

The Governor will be in West Chester on Monday.  If you want to join the protest and ask the Governor why he isn’t taking a stand on Common Core, join us.

The bill actually limits standardized testing on these tests to four hours per assessment per year.  The limit would go into effect for the 2015-16 school year. The confusion stems from news reports which characterized the proposed testing limit as “four hours per […]

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the stupidest man of all.”

th-1Jonathan Gruber, the now notorious Obamacare architect, may just well be the most toxic man in America. He has managed to offend literally all of the American public by referring to the “stupidity of the American voter,” calling his countrymen “too stupid,” and claiming that we have a “lack of economic understanding.” These comments and more were made in at least six video clips from various conferences during which Gruber explained the way Americans were […]

What Does College Credit Plus Mean for Taxpayers

taxpayerRepublicans in the General Assembly inserted in the mid biennium review bill, HB 487, a program which sounds like it could be connected to Common Core.
