High School Senior Blows Away Central Planning Mentality Behind Common Core

At a Knox County School Board meeting in Tennessee earlier in the month, high school senior Ethan Young made the case against the top-down, one-size-fits-all approach to producing ideologically homogeneous tax slaves for the welfare state known as Common Core:

The approach didn’t work in manufacturing in the Soviet Union; it isn’t going to work in education in the USA.

    Draft this man for President. Now.

    Damn looks like one got away. This guy somehow slipped through the cracks. Maybe he was early childhood home-schooling and taught Critical Thinking.

    It’s GOOD to see they aren’t ALL brainless sheep.

    I pray one day my sons will be so inspiring.

    @Belfast, he’s too young to be President, and by the time he’s eligible the US might be an ash heap. But, he’d make a great Secretary of Education under President Cruz.

    Hopefully, his mission would be to demolish the DoE and get the liberals in that waste of office space out of public education.

    Arne Duncan needs to be replaced by this young man….
    I watched my former colleagues mindlessly support this totally failed administration …..twice! And than complain about the implementation and all it’s effects of Common Core. Our State got a huge 79 million bribe from “Race to the Top” which just has been used to implement a oppressive and incomprehensible state- wide teacher evaluation.
    program……really just a piece of the implementation of Common Core.
    I couldn’t be more happy to be retired !

    Well done, young man.

    Articulate and impressive.

    There are embers of hope out their, despite what the Communist keep telling us. The Rat Bastards.

    Well done, well educated, well prepared, and well said – all WITHOUT Common Core…

    He is exactly the type of student (and person) that Common Core is designed to prevent.
