Gov Kasich needs some wake-up Tweets to Repeal Common Core

From the Columbus Dispatch (h/t Marianne, Mansfield Tea Party) :

Gov. John Kasich doesn’t expect to see a Common Core elimination bill land on his desk.
In a meeting yesterday with the Dispatch editorial board, Kasich was asked about the effort by some Republican legislative leaders to repeal the Common Core education standards for math and English/language arts, along with Ohio’s other standards and tests.
“I don’t know that there’s any effort to repeal Common Core,” he said. “There may be an effort to talk about it.”
Kasich has said he supports the Common Core standards, adopted by Ohio and more than 40 other states in 2010 after they were developed by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers as a way to boost college and career readiness among U.S. students.
“I wish we could just change the name to Ohio’s standards, or whatever,” Kasich said.
The curriculum to meet the standards is developed by local school officials, Kasich said, and parents can advise school boards.
“Until somebody can show me we’re eroding local control, I see no reason to do anything. And I don’t think they’re (the House) going to do anything, to tell you the truth,” Kasich said. “In my judgment, it isn’t going to get to me, and if it does, it isn’t going to look anything like it is."
This is our Governor, the man who is more interested in the wants of his financial backers than the pleas of his constituents, pleas of concerned parents and teachers from both sides of the aisle.  This is the man who wants your vote.
The level of arrogance and ignorance displayed in Governor Kasich's response is outrageous and downright offensive.
