    I've been watching this video, and I'm laughing so hard:

    https://www.fpeusa.org/index.php/about/defeating-common-core

    Did you know that I have to teach my 2nd graders about sexual attraction, require them to wear pressure bracelets, and watch their reactions when I teach them about homosexuality? If their pressure increases, I have to label them as a bully, and this information is available on a database for future employers.

    (Note: I apologize if this violates the politics discussion rules...I wasn't sure, and I found it too interesting not to post!)

    Most of this video addresses the "National Sexuality Standards"-has anyone ever heard of these? I know that my district is not adopting them...

    Seriously? That's absolutely absurd and creepy.

    Well, that's the stuff this guys says Common Core requires us to teach. I also have to show my students picture books on how to...touch themselves.

    The sad thing is that so many people in WI follow this guy, and he is gaining more and more national recognition. I was made aware of this video through a debate I had on facebook with a few friends. They honestly believe that this sort of thing is going on in schools.

    Haha. Okay. Whoops. I didn't read your post right the first time and was afraid you were serious. :rolleyes:

    Huh. So, according to this video, there is a Common Core Dress Code that says that kids can't wear NRA shirts? I wonder if they can point to the "Common Core Dress Code" paragraph that explains that.

    I'd laugh if it wasn't so scary that people actually believe this nonsense. All of this time, energy, and money could be spent actually doing something helpful for children. :dizzy:

    I didn't even make it through 10 minutes. I'm not going to spend time attending to lies and b.s.

    WOW.

    Extremely unfortunate that some people are so easily sucked into ideas like this.
