    Why did I know before even reading the article that this was another of Senator Christensen's anti-education schemes?

    Our state government has turned into the big, big government they claim to despise.

    here is an idea1!! Why doesn't the Governor veto this bill and the good senator run this bill next year in the correct manner with hearings, public comments and time for debate. No good comes from a bill is pushed through at the last minute like this one was.

    The National PTA was given a very large sum of money to support and defend Common Core. No doubt this is where this antagonism over parental oversight comes from. I have had several curriculum concerns since the inception of CC, including age-inappropriate content, political bias, dumbed-down language, math that is meant to confuse instead of teach.... It would be nice to have a forum to voice concerns and effect change more often than every election cycle.

    I don't understand how they can legislate that a committee made up of volunteers will be required to do a job other than the one they volunteered to do.
