Skip to comments.Donald Trump on education: Wrong, wrong and wrong
Posted on 05/08/2016 12:37:51 PM PDT by Innovative
Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, doesnt talk all that much about education issues, but when he does, it is usually about the Common Core, rankings and spending. And usually he is wrong, wrong and wrong.
In one Trump ad this year, he hit all three in just a few sentences:
Im a tremendous believer in education. But education has to be at a local level. We cannot have the bureaucrats in Washington telling you how to manage your childs education. So Common Core is a total disaster. We cant let it continue. We are rated 28th in the world, the United States. Think of it, 28th in the world. And, frankly, we spend far more per pupil than any other country in the world. By far. Its not even a close second.

Screw off, Valerie, you child hater.
Trump is right. Defend the constitution! Get the tyrannical Marxist/fascist feds out of education!
When I was taught, it
If WP thinks Trump is wrong, then I know that Trump is right!
When I was taught, it was at a locally elected. The teachers knew every kid and their parents. The parents knew the teacher and his background it had flaws but it worked.
We were taught to think.
I’ve seen her kind too often for my liking.
At a local level
As a retired (34+ years) public school educator, I say Mr. Trump is SPOT ON!
Valerie, you ignorant slut...
Good bye Common Core
Me, too! Too many liberal women with an agenda, obnoxious, arrogant, and committed to Common Core. I was so happy to retire!
Unlike Valerie, I know ALL ABOUT COMMIE CORE, have seen the lessons plans, ALL OF THE EXAMPLE, FOR EVERY GRADE, for several years and understand exactly WHY every single thing about COMMIE CORE harms children and STINKS ON ICE!
Her argument that Trump is wrong is rather weak and pathetic...
Her resources she uses to back up her claim that Trump is wrong actually backs up what Trump is saying...
As much as we spend on education we should be ranked top five minimum across the board in every segment...
Imho, if the president’s cabinet consists of the War dept, the State dept and the Commerce dept, we would spend less, and the private sector would earn more.
Also abolish the Fed minimum wage, income taxes never exceed 10%, I could go on and on...
Common Core is dead because department of education will be 3 people and an old underwood typewriter. Get to a real job. valerie. We are actually going to teach little know history — like WWII and VietNam and Korea.
Shouldn’t that be Common Corpse.
If Common Core and our educational systems were so great, why are we importing people to fill jobs here in the USA? Because our workers aren’t smart and trained enough.
Never build house in trees.
