Ken Jones: It wasn’t satire?

March 28, 2014 

I read with great amusement your March 21 news story “ Common Core standards debated” about the legislative hearing on the curriculum. I laughed out loud at the assertions that Jesus says that Common Core would lead to “sodomy, abortion and feminism.”

The article goes on to say that people testified that Common Core will lead us down the path to totalitarian control and will help the Communists gain control of the country. Then I realized the article was not a satire and was disheartened the rest of the day.
