The ROPE organization realizes that the work required to Restore Oklahoma Public Education is not about stopping CCSS, so on they work. So must we all. Our Governor has realized her error on Common Core, now she needs to back up her realization and take the lead in helping our state set reasoned standards and develop reasonable, age appropriate ways to measure it.

I am not convinced that Governor Fallin holds what we generally call conservative principles. Yes, she is conservative, but she seems to have statist, progressivist leanings, or she would have never bought into CCSS in the first place. Being the head of an organization does not mean you necessarily support its projects. CCSS is a project that Mary Fallin should have canned the day after she took the reins of the National Governors Association.

I think the word is out that Jeb Bush is a RINO at best, a true statist who says Republicans to need focus on winning elections, not making points. Same for Chris Christie, http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2014/04/06/jeb-bush-to-make-decision-on-2016-by-the-end-of-this-year/ Their efforts to continue CCSS nonsense is not the example to follow.

Frankly, we need to stand on Constitutional principles and work for less government, less regulation, and lower budgets. Our Governor does not seem to always stay focused on such. She seems to be running for POTUS herself. Frankly, I’d rather see T.W. Shannon run for President.

Anyway, the ladies at ROPE posted this, http://restoreoklahomapubliceducation.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-oklahoma-standards-writing-process.html, and it is worthy of consideration. Our Governor needs to take the lead here. If we can involve Dr. Sandra Stotsky, I suggest we should.
