Earlier today Lt. Gov. Dan Forest issued a video in which he responds to the Department of Public Instruction’s response to the questions he submitted regarding the implementation of Common Core Standards in North Carolina.
If you remember in July, Forest sent Superintendent June Atkinson 67 questions about Common Core. DPI responded with a big data dump that averaged about 597 pages per question. If you take that long to answer a question, my guess is you either don’t know the answer or are hiding something.
If you’re mad, that makes two of us. I think the response is dismissive and disrespectful. Still, I am glad to hear the Lieutenant Governor is sending copies of the DPI reply to every member of the General Assembly, all 115 school superintendents, all elected County Commissioners and local school board members statewide.
