Careful what you say about your kid’s public school curriculum.
The company behind a controversial common core math program in North Carolina is suing a dad for libel and slander.
The parent of a high school student has been on a “crusade,” the lawsuit claims, against the math program. Instead of teacher led instruction, students are taught through self-discovery.
He and many others see strong evidence that the old methods are better. That’s why he created a Facebook group and website where he lays out his criticism of the program.
We checked out the guy’s website, and it is full of well thought out rational criticism. Whether he is correct or not is irrelevant. He is just expressing an opinion on the type of education his child will receive in public school.
We’ve moved beyond gender neutral pronouns and triggering micro-aggressions. Now just expressing any old opinion offends people.
Apparently you can’t do that in the USA, anymore. If you offend someone with constructive criticism, they turn around and sue you.
