Your kid doesn't bring home the standards. Your kid brings home crappy worksheets and crappy books. These are made by companies trying to take over education. The Common Core standards themselves are overall better than what they replaced. We need more freely shared teacher-created lessons, units, books and projects so we can ditch the for profit companies making garbage resources.
Wow. If you can't argue intelligently, bring out the homophobic insults.
Wow. You are an idiot getting information from other idiots. There's a reason the Common Core standards don't mention Christianity or the Civil War. Common Core is a set of English/Language Arts and mathematics standards. They AREN'T history standards. They don't address history because they aren't history standards!
The second link is about a history textbook. It's not a common-core aligned history textbook because there are no history standards.
The closest they come is talking about what reading and literacy skills kids should have in the context of reading historical works, for example, they say students should "Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including analyzing how an author uses and refines the meaning of a key term over the course of a text (e.g., how Madison defines faction in Federalist No. 10)."
Do yourself a favor and actually go read the standards instead of reading right-wing hit pieces that have to lie because they don't have any legitimate arguments.
Arresting the nitwits who shine lasers in people's faces is a mitigation measure.
And the actual landing (albeit on water) of the actual first stage booster. That's quite a feat.
I don't recall Apollo capsules carrying seven or being able to land propulsively exactly where you want them to.
No, I've found that most of those ignorants SAY they are going to vote for a 3rd party and then usually go and vote for the Republican anyway because of Jesus and/or gay people.
Of course I live in the South and we have some very special ignorance down here.
If you read the stories on this carefully, you find out that it was a model of an F4 Phantom, not a copter type "drone" that we think of now.
Why is it that everything that flies now and doesn't have a pilot is called a drone and is a major new concern, even if it's been around for decades?
Yes, but tech knowledge and teaching ability/subject knowledge are two entirely different things. I'm a former classroom teacher whose job it is now to work with other teachers and help them use technology effectively in the classroom. There are some people who are great teachers, but they aren't great technology users. This looks simple enough that they could easily manage it.
You have entirely no clue.
"Tenure" in the vast majority of school systems is pretty much just a requirement that due process be followed before you can fire someone. This usually means a few hearing, some appeals, and an actual cause for firing.
Before tenure, teachers could and did get fired for the horrible offenses such as:
1. Not campaigning for the right school board member
2. Being an unmarried woman who went out on a date
3. Being gay
4. Being older and therefore demanding a higher salary than a new, not very good teacher
5. Daring to question or report wrongdoing of an administrator
If you don't think those things will happen again once tenure is gone, you have no clue. You can still fire someone who is not doing their job well. It happens all the time, even in states with tenure.
I would posit that being locked away in a box with people as bad as me for the rest of my life is not "getting away with it gracefully."
I'm sure if you ever get "mistakenly" classified as toxic waste, you will continue to feel the same way.
11 birds a month. While sad, it's not even a statistical blip when compared to the number of birds we will with cars, skyscrapers and outdoor cats.
I can vouch for the ridge vs. plain thing. In Kerbal Space Program some of my awesome, ridiculously low Munar orbits sometimes fail to take those ridges into consideration. Ouch. Sorry Jeb.
