Huppenthal Hides (Common Core) Child Pornography from the Prying Eyes of Arizona Parents

GilbertWatch

Before Superintendent Huppenthal cries "Foul" about my title, I would like to remind him of his own title and the responsibility it carries.  The buck stops with him.  The Common Core curriculum appears in every nook and cranny on the Arizona Department of Education website.  Embedded within that curriculum are suggested readings for 16-year old children that could not be read in any school board meeting, because they are too explicitly sexual…

by Bill Korach - September 26, 2013 - The Report Cart

20 Of the Most Obnoxious Quotes From College Professors

John Hawkins | Sep 21, 2013 Townhall

College classrooms are supposed to be politically neutral, not indoctrination centers for liberalism. Yet, we have conservative parents who save money for decades to send their children to universities that teach everything conservatives believe is wrong. We have Republican state legislatures that fund colleges whose first goal is to…

Then maybe he will read some of the stuff I sent him. I…
