Arizona, Republicans Low In All Rankings



It’s fun to read the football rankings each week.

Here’s another one to consider: Neither the Republicans or Arizona made the top 10 in national scholastic performance.

From what I read in the Roundup, Payson is less than stellar education-wise too.

Education rankings by state and how they voted in the last election:

  1. Massachusetts, Democrat

  2. New Jersey, Democrat

  3. Vermont, Democrat

  4. New Hampshire, Democrat

  5. Connecticut, Democrat

  6. Maryland, Democrat

  7. Minnesota, Democrat

  8. Pennsylvania, Democrat

  9. Colorado, Democrat

  10. Wisconsin, Democrat

  11. Virginia, Democrat

  12. Kansas, Democrat

  13. Montana, Republican

Arizona is ranked 46th.

Well, at least it gives us something to shoot for instead of someone to shoot at.

So, Mr. Sutton, when do you plan on moving to one of these wonderful democratic bastions?

Common core will change education standards.We must all be informed in what our children are learning and stop common core and all of Obama's ideas.

Addressing Mr. Sutton's revealing statistics: Isn't it interesting that the least educated states (which usually makes them the poorer states too) have elected Republicans rather than Democrats to help turn them around? Could this possibly mean the Republicans are actually the party for the poor and uneducated? Thank you Mr. Sutton for pointing out the obvious.

In response to Mr. Kasl's astute observation above, I'd like to add here a Letter to the Editor that our editor has currently refused to publish:

Common Core is a Crock

Don’t listen to liberals cooing over the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) cooked up by the likes of Bill Gates and the UN.

The reform known as Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for grades K-12 is designed to produce a universal "work force ready" population prepared to identify themselves as "global citizens." CCSS demotes American values, undermines American constitutional principles and detaches students from their families and faith. The UN knows how difficult it is to convince free people to abandon their country, faith, and culture. They are relying on the indoctrination of coming generations to embrace the principles of globalism.

Critics of CCSS have reported disturbing texts containing crude, sexually explicit readings for teens. Multiple examples of anti-American sentiment abound. The Boston Tea Party is called "a terrorist act." Examples from a grammar lesson relate, "The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all," and "The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation.”

In grade school textbooks, concepts of justice and equality are given politically biased meanings. “Justice” means the redistribution of wealth and resources. “Equality” dismantles preference for one's own culture, religion, and customs. Data gathered on students is supposedly to improve performance but is in truth a measurement of a student's adjusted attitude and behavior---a Soviet style "managed outcome."

Thoroughly investigate this program and discover the real agenda of Common Core, where the student is a product, schools are processing plants, and teachers are informative delivery agents. The ultimate goal of CCSS is to train workers to serve a one-world government, not the education of children to freely pursue their own identity, ideals, faith, and careers.
