I don’t think a horse has ever been beaten so much without dying but the beast that has become Common Core just doesn’t want to snuff out.
I received an interesting letter in my email the other day containing a petition from several “prominent” Louisiana businesses and organizations urging citizens to support Common Core and the standardized test that is known as the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness of College and Careers, or the PARCC.
I’m all about conviction and commend anyone who would take the time to draw a petition for something they believe in but may I ask a question?
I’ve just moved into the most wonderful new office space. In fact, I have my own little building and I’ve discovered it’s the perfect area for working on all the partnership initiatives that ACHIEVE has under its expansive umbrella.
About three weeks before Tuesday’s election, the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce and Louisiana Tech’s Student Government Association held a mayoral forum the organizations hoped would clearly differentiate the two candidates.
It didn’t. Both Bill Elmore and Ronny Walker continued to talk about the same things: economic development, stronger ties with education, upgraded recreational facilities and eliminating red tape that each has said is impeding business development.
