4th Grade Reading Assignments: Black Panthers, Police Brutality, Need for Amnesty

I hope the Jebster is stubborn enough, and arrogant enough to keep doubling down on his support for Common Core:

From Breitbart:

Fourth graders in Wake County, North Carolina have been assigned one book that involves the Black Panthers and racism, and another involving a father’s murder, police crackdowns on Mexican unions, and immigration to the United States.

According to Stop Common Core North Carolina, a parent reported 4th graders have been told to read the book One Crazy Summer, by Rita Williams-Garcia, in which three sisters are sent by their negligent mother to a camp run by the Black Panthers.

A description of the book at Amazon.com states it is “the story of three sisters who travel to Oakland, California in 1968 to meet the mother who abandoned them.”

The Department Of Indoctronation at it's finest. I'm glad that Walker has proposed that Wisconsin schools don't have to abide by Common Core guidelines.

The only controls I want on my guns are the ones I operate by myself, such as safety, magazine release, bolt or slide, optics an' trigger. Any others are unnecessary.

Isn't that content a little heavy for 4th graders? What happened to Charlotte's Web or Mr. Popper's Penguins?  Cry Cry Cry

Suggested CC reading lists are graded on a Lexile scale. 
It's a formula for age appropriateness that aligns with common core.  By appropriateness, I don't mean the content of the story, but the difficultly level.   

From what I've read, there are suggested lists, but that doesn't mean this book was on that list.  It could have just been the teachers or schools choice to use it.

I would be curious if this book is on the CC reading list and why the teacher/school picked it.

Why is this book on a Common Core reading list?

“The Bluest Eye” does appear on the Common Core Standard’s recommended reading list for 11th graders, and 40 states have signed on to those Common Core standards.

GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT of the left-wing gub'ment schools. They will get worse.
