New York State Education Commissioner Claims Opposing Common Core Is Racist


We knew this was coming.:  The New York State Education Commissioner, John King, compared Common Core to desegregation and accused opponents of–surprise!–racism.

How many times have we seen this before? When all else fails, liberals resort to calling their critics “racist,” even if the issue at hand has nothing to do with race.

King said Common Core educational standards are an attempt to close the achievement gap between minority and low-income students relative to their peers. He urged parents and educators to not back off from their commitment to Common Core.

“This is about taking responsibility for educating every single child no matter what his or her race, background or economic status,” the commissioner said. “By retreating from accountability and allowing children at risk to slip through the cracks, advocates of lower standards deny us the talents of all Americans.”

News flash: schools are already responsible for educating children of all races. The fact that King implied otherwise shows that Common Core supporters are getting desperate, and the race card is all they have left.
