    OMG! You say progressive values are taught with religious fervor and it would be better for parents to send their children to parochial schools? You've got to be kidding me? Charter schools and private institutions are the right answer for some children, but they can't accomodate the majority. I am sick and tired of EVERYTHING being talked about in a partisan way. Education of our children should not be partisan. We all should be working together to make it work.

    Despite denials to the contrary. Progressive and liberal values are tantamount to a religion. Many of these ideas in education today began centuries ago when writers began to advance secular humanistic ideals in pursuit of utopian results. Post-modernist educators and contemporary writers demonized Christian ethics and morals because their goal then and now was to replace it with a more existentialist worldview. Common Core standards have the tendency to promote equality of outcome in education, and the consequence is some students with no real desire to excel can retain their self esteem. There is much to criticize about the Federal governments tendency to make matters worse rather than better. With deeply entrenched progressive values taught with religious fervor, the best solution for states is to encourage and support charter schools and parochial education, where you can actually learn to think.
