You may have already seen this speech by Dr. Everett Piper at a Common Core forum in Edmond, Oklahoma, but it is worth posting again. Thanks to Restore Oklahoma Public Education (facebook) for sharing!
Speaking at a Common Core forum in Edmond, Oklahoma, Dr. Everett Piper makes the case that Common Core State Standards are indeed ‘common’ and that a true liberal arts education has no place for ‘common’. Ideas have consequences. Ideas matter. Every human and every human institution is blessed or cursed by their guiding principals – by the importance they place on their ideas. In many ways, we inevitably do practice what we preach.
Dr. Piper is the author of “Why I’m A Liberal and other Conservative Ideas”.
