While I am not a fan of Common Core State Standards, some of the arguments against them border on the ridiculous.
The argument offered by Florida legislator Charles Van Zant, not only borders on the ridiculous, but it crosses the ridiculous and ends up firmly in the Twilight Zone:
This ominous warning came at an anti-Common Core event in March courtesy of Florida State Rep. Charles Van Zant (R). Speaking at the “Operation Education Conference” in Orlando, Van Zant warned that officials implementing Common Core in Florida are “promoting as hard as they can any youth that is interested in the LGBT agenda.”
Their aim, Van Zant warned, was to “attract every one of your children to become as homosexual as they possibly can.” He then apologized to the crowd for having to be the bearer of bad news. “I really hate to bring you that news,” the Florida Republican said, “but you need to know.”
