Beason showed a copy of his daughter’s homework assignment from a Gardendale school. It’s an item he talks about often to Common Core opponents, as an example of the Obama administration promoting a liberal agenda to impressionable schoolchildren.
The schoolwork is about automobiles, acknowledging their usefulness but disparaging their internal-combustion engines because of pollution. The assignment claims that hybrids are better, and government should require manufacturers to make them more affordable.
“Education has always been about a world view — train up a child in the way they should go,” Beason said, quoting a portion of Proverbs 22:6.
Beason likens Common Core to Obama’s struggling Affordable Care Act. “We call it ObamaCore,” he said.
