Sen. Scott Beason takes up fight against Common Core yet again



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.
