Arne Duncan, U. S. Sect. of Education, endorsed same-sex marriage, which is in direct violation of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a federal law passed by Congress.
What could the purpose be for a Secretary of Education making such an announcement, anyway? He said Common Core was about reading and math scores. And didn’t he say Common Core was just about rigor in education and raising standards –and was not political? Wait a minute! Wait a minute!
So, what difference does it make that U. S. Sec. of Education Arne Duncan endorsed same-sex marriage?
Duncan is in charge of our nation’s public schools – millions of kids! Because some 46 states have committed to teach public school students the Common Core Standards approved by Arne Duncan and Obama, it makes a huge difference. What ideas will be implemented into the CCSS standards and assessments?
Why, oh why, are we so naiive? Why are we still connected to the Common Core Initiative?
