There is a reason that people have learned reading, writing and arithmetic in generally the same way over the years, and that’s because the tried-and-true traditional methods work. That’s why many people wondered what the real agenda of the Common Core national standards were when the Obama administration started pushing for it so relentlessly. This ridiculous set of educational standards has left many students and parents baffled and frustrated, and it’s believed to be a key reason that American kids are lagging behind other nations in academic performance.

Most everyone knows not to head to work, a social event or school with a raging cold, complete with frequent bathroom trips and excessive nose-blowing.
America truly is turning into a 1984-esque police state, and ground zero for this authoritarian onslaught appears to be New York City where government-run public schools are now on a crusade to eliminate butter from school cafeterias. As reported by New York Daily News (NYDN), some kitchen managers in the Brooklyn regional school district are being bullied and threatened with "disciplinary action" for daring to use butter in prepared meals served to children at school cafeterias.
Since the teachers unions, aided by friendly far-left-of-center politicians and bureaucrats, took over public schools a couple of decades ago, American education, quite simply, has been in steep decline.
