Fired Over Common Core?


WASHINGTON — Congressman Steve Stockman said Tuesday President Obama should fire Education Secretary Arne Duncan after what Duncan termed an apology Monday never actually apologized for attacking white women who oppose Common Core curriculum and calling their children stupid.

“Not only does Common Core dumb down our schools, it’s dumbed down the Education Secretary,” said Stockman. “It’s time to expel Common Core from our schools and expel Arne Duncan from the Obama administration.”

“Duncan did not deny the Obama administration thinks less of Common Core critics who are white or women. He did not deny the Obama administration thinks your children are dumb. He just said his wording was ‘clumsy,’” said Stockman. “Obama has no choice but to fire Duncan and apologize for his racist, sexist attack on women and children.”

“It’s fascinating to me that some of the pushback is coming from, sort of, white suburban moms who — all of a sudden — their child isn’t as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isn’t quite as good as they thought they were, and that’s pretty scary,” Duncan said in a speech Friday in Richmond, Va., addressing the Council of Chief State Schools Officers Organization.

Duncan’s remarks were confirmed by Education Department Assistant Secretary for Communications and Outreach Massie Ritsch and reported Saturday by the Washington Post.

Duncan attempted to walk back his comments Monday; but while he called his choice of words “clumsy,” he never denied the Obama administration thinks less of women who question Common Core or their children.

“A few days ago, in a discussion with state education chiefs, I used some clumsy phrasing that I regret – particularly because it distracted from an important conversation about how to better prepare all of America’s students for success,” Duncan wrote Monday on the Education Department’s website.

“His only regret is that his attitude toward women distracts from his desire for more failed federal control over local schools,” said Stockman. “That’s not an apology. That’s an indictment.”

“Opposition to Common Core must be led by the states.  Texas may not have officially taken Common Core standards, but they did work with the same groups in the writing of the TEKS. Texas needs to kill CScope and reject Race to the Top funding if we are to get Washington mediocrity out of our schools,” said Stockman.

  1. I am outraged at the deception! I have a gifted child with an IQ of 137. She was achieving 7th grade in the 4th and was outscoring the 7th graders. That was the only challenge she had. From the 7th and 8th grade, her grades are so low it's not funny! Not because she can't do the work, she is bored beyond belief. She gets in trouble constantly and is a very unhappy child, because of the dumb down common core education! I now understand why the streets were full of angry kids fighting each other! They can't get a job with the lack of education and abilities. They do not experience accomplishments, This is the worst program that could have ever been introduce to our young. Common Core education has harmed our children in every state in the US! Commom Core education needs repealed!

  2. Bury her, with Obama, 10 feet deep and face down……..

    First it is a proven fact that DNA from WHITES is different than that from blacks. Scientific evidence says whites are SMARTER than blacks. THE VERY REASON WHY all governments have encouraged white girls marrying blacks….since the 1% criminals wants to eradicate the white race. What better way to do it than by mixing races and weakening the DNA. Then indoctrinate these children with all the hog wash taught in school and you can complete your dream of the NWO of eliminating 80% of the world population. Then you teach all the lies of history and politics in school to abuse these young minds. There is such a thing as JUDGEMENT DAY…pity you…you can't win forever. GOD WINS….YOU LOOSE.
