Thought for Today (7/23/2017)

A community college chancellor, Eloy Ortiz Oakley, states that requiring students to take and pass algebra to get a degree is a violation of the students’ civil rights.  Is this what common core education has taken us to?  If a course seems too difficult just declare it a civil rights violation and move on?

Instead of lowering the standard to be more inclusive, how about raising the expectations and actually teaching children! ~ ME
