HOT OFF THE PRESSES! Arizona Board of Education voted 6-2 to reject the Common Core Standards, though it said it wouldn't eliminate them immediately, after Ed Supe Diane Douglas presented the idea at the meeting.
"This will send a clear message to the citizens of Arizona and the nation that Arizonans are smart enough, engaged enough, and collaborative enough to control the education of our own children, " said Douglas.
Which means what I just posted a few minutes ago, that "it's unlikely to happen" was dead wrong. I think I'll avoid the racetrack, online betting and poker with the boys today.
