This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Lance Miller. Miller is one of many of people on our Facebook page who reacted to Governor Bobby Jindal's plan to repeal and replace the Common Core curriculum in public schools. The issue is still generating a lot of disagreement, but Miller is one who does not like Common Core.
In his words: For decades, American children have been falling further and further behind the rest of the globe in education when our children's education should be the envy of the world. Americans as a whole have the will, the intellect, the knowledge, and the funding to be on the leading edge in every aspect globally (including education), yet over the past half century, we have been systematically destroying ourselves instead of coming together as a whole and leading the world.
