Peter Greene, in his inimitable style, takes apart a Newsweek writer who mocks the comedian Louis C.K. The aforementioned Mr. C.K. had the nerve to criticize Common Core.
As is well known by now, the Common Core supposedly teaches critical thinking. But the one thing you are not allowed to think critically about is the Common Core. If you dare to do so, you will be called an extremist of right or left. You will be ridiculed as a “whiner” or a kook. If you ask for evidence of its value, you will be dismissed as shrill. Be careful what you say about Common Core.
