The city is already soaking the consumers for a 10% sales tax and that isn't enough??? Tenn has a 10% sales tax but they have no income tax. Why are we in this area getting raped every time we buy something? Government needs to go on a diet just like the rest of us in this slow economy. Incr…

"For the record, Common Core was not created by the federal government, nor is it overseen by the feds"

Brubaker admits "You haven't seen it yet," he said of the math curriculum. Why would you vote to adopt something you havn't seen yet? How about I get you to buy a car and sign you up for a payment plan, and I will show you the details later.The state took the bait of "maybe&qu…

If the readiness of the students have been going down, Common Core is not going to help. The standards adopted are lower than what they replaced. And no, the state and locals can not change the standards. They are copyrighted. The state was lured in to accept the CC standards when they appli…
