No, Gov. Richardson, Common Core Does Not Help Hispanic Students

Former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson apparently didn’t get the email from the Democratic National Committee warning its mouthpieces to avoid the “political third rail” of Common Core. In the Give Us a Break Department, Richardson has accused parents who object to the grossly deficient national standards for being motivated by hatred toward Hispanics. Don’t ask for an explication of Richardson’s logic, because there is none. Maybe he’s offering an English language arts lesson in the use of the non sequitur. Richardson preaches that if you like Hispanic children, you must support Common Core, because Hispanic parents want high academic standards.
