Quotes

"We have been able to make a difference to the improvement of state schools through creating the fastest growth in volunteer governors of any UK employer. Universities have much to offer schools in terms of governance, not only from their pools of talented academic and professional services staff, but also through their vast alumni communities – their former students. We have taken a lead on this issue by producing a guide with our partners SGOSS describing the simple steps any University can take that wishes to contribute to the development of schools in this way." Professor Aneez Esmail, Associate Vice-President for Social Responsibility, The University of Manchester
Billionaire Bill Gates, who has given over $200 million to facilitate and promote Common Core, contends: "With consistent academic standards, our nation is one step closer to supporting effective teaching in every classroom, charting a path to college and careers for all students, and developing the tools to help all children stay motivated and engaged in their own education. The more states that adopt these college and career based standards, the closer we will be to sharing innovation across state borders and becoming more competitive as a country." Sounds pretty amazing, doesn't it?
"We are united by a common goal to reduce prescription drugdrug abuse," Gov. Sandoval said. "Bringing states together will help each of us learn ways to combat this growing problem. It is an honor to serve as co-lead on this timely and important issue."
...by the Office of Refugee Resettlement to sponsors in Tennessee without my administration’s knowledge," he wrote in a letter to Obama and Burwell.
