(brietbart) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is, again, insulting citizens of his state who oppose the Common Core standards. In January, Kasich referred to resistance to the controversial education initiative as “hysteria,” and on Thursday the governor said Common Core opposition is “a runaway internet campaign, as far as I’m concerned in Ohio.”
Telegraph-Forum of Bucyrus, Ohio reports that, on a trip to South Carolina, the potential 2016 presidential contender reaffirmed his support for the nationalized standards.
When asked about the Common Core, Kasich responded, “That is not something that Barack Obama is putting together…it’s local school boards developing local curriculum to meet higher standards. I cannot figure out what’s wrong with that.”
RINO TRACKER RESPONSE FROM CHIP MCLEAN:
Just a “runaway internet campaign”? Several states have already withdrawn from Common Core or are scheduled to. At least 26 states plan to withdraw from or otherwise modify it.
Kasich – in supporting Common Core – demonstrates his support for big government programs and the nationalization of education.
To find out more about just how bad Common Core is, I would recommend these three articles from Capitol Hill Outsider writer Anita Hoge:
