WHEREAS public education has always been primarily a local and state function, with the Federal government providing no more than 7% of all funding;
WHEREAS the overwhelming bulk of intrusive regulations and reporting requirements nonetheless emanate from the US Department of Education, requiring countless dollars and man-hours to be diverted from our classrooms to satisfy bureaucratic “accountability”;
WHEREAS the curriculum standards known as Common Core are being promoted by the US Department of Education as the basis for what amounts to a national curriculum enforced by high-stakes testing that has no research base to support its effectiveness:
WHEREAS Common Core itself is the product of political ideology rather than sound educational practices or research-based design;
WHEREAS the teachers in Delaware classrooms are being required to advance the Common Core agenda rather than using their best professional judgment in educating our children;
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Libertarian Party of Delaware opposes the imposition of the so-called “Common Core standards” as well as the requirement for high-stakes testing on those standards, and advocates for a return to real local and state control of public education via parents, teachers and school boards.
Wow finally a political party in Delaware standing up to the Washington D.C. assault on local control of public education. The time has come to end the two-party gridlock in America and Delaware.

I’m sorry, but isn’t telling a black man he is only black as long as he thinks a certain way racist? True freedom and equality is the choices you get to make for yourself and the ability to feel and think as an individual instead of a group.

Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Southerner?
Here is a little test that will help you decide.
The answer can be found by posing the following question:
You’re walking down a
deserted street with your wife
and two small children.
Suddenly, a Terrorist with a huge knife
comes around the corner,
locks eyes with you,
raises the knife, and charges at you…
You are carrying a
Kimber 1911 cal. 45 ACP, and you are an expert shot.
You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.
What do you do?
THINK CAREFULLY AND
THEN SCROLL DOWN:
