Re: “Trump Ends DACA Program, Leaves DREAMers Facing Deportation

He has supported racists and bigots, destabilized our Military by his ban on Transgenders, and now he is calling for the possible removal of individuals brought to this country as Children...they know No other Country...the US is their Country!!!...Children paying the price for the "sins" of their Parents.

Donald Trump will continue his Divisive Influences as a Threat to the very fabric of our Democracy and National Security unless he is REMOVED from Office Forthwith!!!

Re: “A Few Thoughts on the New AzMERIT Scores

Mr. Spanier: As you probably know, our "Founding Fathers" knew all too well that the Viability and Long Term Survival of our Republic is Directly Related to a Viable/Successful System of Public Education; teaching Citizens "to take the measure of a Man"; to Critically Evaluate Candidates for Public Office!!!

I never suggested that the Federal Government or Agency develop and impose "... a national curriculum from the federal agency level to the states and LEAs.

What I did suggest is that Constitutionally, Congress by providing for the "General Welfare" and the Executive's National Security Responsibilities MUST step in if a State/Local District fails in efforts or is not providing it's Citizens with a Quality Education. These problems must be Diagnosed and Remedies Instituted.

Efforts such as Common Core must have the support and encouragement of the Federal Government...."National Curriculum/Assessment Examinations"

Re: “A Few Thoughts on the New AzMERIT Scores

Mr. Spanier: With all due respect, you have an Egregious/False Notion of National Curriculum (Common Core ) Standards!! They are not IMPOSED by the Federal Government, but, in fact, Developed and Voluntary Adapted by he States Themselves. Please....Please GET THE FACTS before you Criticize!!

http://www.corestandards.org/about-the-sta…

The Common Core is a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA). These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade."...." Forty-two states, the District of Columbia, four territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) have voluntarily adopted and are moving forward with the Common Core."...Recognizing the value and need for consistent learning goals across states, in 2009 the state school chiefs and governors that comprise CCSSO and the NGA Center coordinated a state-led effort to develop the Common Core State Standards. Designed through collaboration among teachers, school chiefs, administrators, and other experts, the standards provide a clear and consistent framework for educators."...

Re: “A Few Thoughts on the New AzMERIT Scores

Mr. Spanier: You are correct about this "President" and this Congress...and that we are a Republic where the Voters ultimately decide the course of action.....and given that....

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."..... Abraham Lincoln

Re: “A Few Thoughts on the New AzMERIT Scores

So you say!!!...and....a failing System of Public Education is a National Security Issue that both the President and Congress have the Constitutional Authority to Address.
