This one comes from the Secretary of the Department of Education no less.

And it's hot off the press one day after the Obama embarrassment and decision to allow old health insurance plans to continue if possible.

These comments are not good and certainly alienate many citizens.

It seems the entire Obama administration is hooked on vengeance and some kind of 'get even' attitude.



U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan told a group of state schools superintendents Friday that he found it “fascinating” that some of the opposition to the Common Core State Standards has come from

“white suburban moms who — all of a sudden — their child isn’t as brilliant as they thought they were, and their school isn’t quite as good as they thought they were.”

Yes, he really said that. But he has said similar things before. What, exactly, is he talking about?




Arne Duncan: ‘White suburban moms’ upset that Common Core shows their kids aren’t ‘brilliant’

Well, is there any truth to the statement?

Are the main opponents white soccer moms that find out their kid is not as smart as they thought?

I bet he's talking about peoples reactions to shipping urban kids into suburban/rural schools for "diversity". Diversity in this sense means trying to even out test scores.

But yeah, it's racist. And it should be called out as such. Double standards aren't fair nor are they ethical or moral.

If there would be 'any truth' to it...

what would justify making this kind of torpedoing statement ?

and did he say white 'soccer' moms specifically ?

No, the main opponents are educated people in general.

NOBODY likes common core. I was watching a news story here in New York where they had a public forum of an auditorium full of pissed parents complaining about this brain melting curriculum. It consisted of various races of parents. White, Black, Latino...

Disregard this idiots words. His job is to push something that is obviously very harmful for a child's development. That is their aim, to make the next generation as dumb and compliant as possible.

If its true......its true.

I know many white "soccer mom" types that get all worked up when their kids dont do as well as they brag to their friends.

It may seem racist or wrong, but the truth is the truth and we need people that are willing to say it.....despite political correctness.

Common core is junk and I agree, but is this person speaking about those that are most vocal in opposition?

Is there any truth is what he said?

Well I imagine if we want to somehow justify these comments by high federal officials, I suppose we should try to find some statistics to back up that claim.

Did Arne Duncan refer to any ?

Naive fool you are who thinks that TRUTH is in any way a valid defence of accusations of rasicm in the PC "all the same under the skin" paradigm.

And in any case, it was an accusation against white people, so by definition it could not ever be racist, ever.

In contrast, imagine the outrage if he'd said that black students are dumber than their parents think they are. The riots in the street would leave hundreds dead and the shock wave would reverberate for years afterwards.

They may appear to be the most vocal opponents, but, do you really agree with his reasoning why?? Condescending at best, racist at worst. But, totally unnecessary if you want to have a constructive discussion.

Maybe they just see a real problem - as do teachers, and soo many others.

I am also in NYC and have seen many news stories of seriously concerned parents - black, white, Hispanic, Asian - who see it as dumbing down an already appalling education system.

Advice to Education Secretary - Discuss reality - then we'll make progress.

If he were asked to make a statement about black moms, he would surely back it up with statistics about single family homes, and it would go something like this- they just don't seem to care.

The left always resorts to race bait when they get exposed. Obama's common core is 2 +2 = 5. It's straight twilight zone 1984 style and it teaches kids to lie.
