Big news in fight against Common Core: InBloom-peddling Jefferson County CO superintendent resigns tonight; school board severs ties with inBloom

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 7, 2013 09:27 PM

As longtime veterans of the Common Core wars know, the battle isn’t merely about how Fed Ed’s so-called “standards” are susceptible to left-wing propagandizing. The bigger fight has been against the Big Government/Big Business machine infiltrating school districts through testing, textbook, and technology trojan horses. On this front, conservative, liberal, and independent parents alike have […]

More parents stand up to educrats, face no-trespass and gag orders
