Video- New Jersey ten-year-old speaks against Common Core tests

After listening to Joplin administrators talking about the Missouri Learning Standards (they are not allowed to use the words Common Core), and watching the R-8 Board of Education spend $103,000 to add keyboards to the eighth grade iPads, not so they can do writing assignments, but so they can take the Common Core tests, it was a pleasure to listen to someone who can speak about education in an understandable fashion. Sadly, the 10-year-old in this video makes far more sense than anyone I listened to last night.

Wow! She did a brilliant job. I recommend her as our next Superintendent. As she read her speech, I didn't hear one, "you know", "Ugh", "Um" or any stuttering as our current, CJ "I'm a brilliant academician" Huff does.
