Advocates of centralized, national standards again try to redefine what "state-driven" means.
One can't claim the Next Generation of Science Standards are state-driven when they are based on the framework of a DC-based organization with an agenda.

It seems like the discussion on Josh Duggar has been from two different extremes, I try to find some middle ground.
Shane Vander Hart: It seems like much of what has been said of the news of Josh Duggar’s sexual offenses as a juvenile has been from two different extremes.

This was good, unless you are from the Ron Paul branch of the party then you probably will hate it. :).
When U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) addressed the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City on Wednesday he looked like a Commander-in-Chief.

I didn't see this exchange coming.

I think these remarks by Paul will hurt him.
U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) blamed the rise of ISIS on the GOP Hawks. Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) fired back saying he is unsuited to be Commander-in-Chief.

This may be the best thing to come out of the Iowa Legislature this session as there is a high probability it will pass the Senate.
The Iowa House of Representatives passed HF 614, on a 53-43 vote, that legalizes fireworks starting on December 1, 2015 should the bill become law.

Oh, gee thanks!
California's State Superintendent of Public Instruction announced he is no longer using the term "Common Core" because it has confused and polarized people.
