First he is talking about non mastery tests. He then said its up to districts to determine ifRead Moreparent s can opt out. He also made a good point about making your kids take tests. But if your kid is stupid then by all means opt out. I never for one second thought about opting out my kids. They never struggled with tests. I made sure of that. Maybe Gary should spend more time teaching his kid at home and less time complaining about tests online.

Orion I met a fat old jolly man who was doling out free gifts, it does not mean I believe in SantaRead MoreC laus. Everything I said about James Marooney is what has been conveyed to me by other state representatives, my neighbors and people who have been following him. When I looked into all this stuff I really tried hard to find some compelling evidence behind his gentle smile, charismatic face and soft spoken words. Unfortunately "there is no steel holding up this building" the guy is an election façade and a loyal subject of the will and intent of the Democratic Party. He is working hard, but not for you, he is working hard for himself by trying to prove his loyalties to Dan Malloy, the Democratic party and his personal ambitions. If anyone here thinks he is going to do something nice for you, yea maybe he might speak to you kindly, shake your hand kiss your baby and nothing else. I really really want to be wrong but I can't find anything meaningful that this guy stands for besides himself and his dreams.

Orion, Rocco wishes he could be a state rep. He has tried and failed to get elected a few times.Read MorePeo ple don't buy into his conspiracy theories and nuttiness. It's really to bad. He could possibly do something with his political party. Try to make a viable third option in Milford. Problem is that Rocco cannot run it. He should let someone else do it.

He doesn't need the money. He's a life long Milford resident and that's the only qualificationRead Morerequi red to win a Milford election.

I love the first sentence ,"Only 26 of Trumbull High School’s 530 juniors showed up toRead Moreta ke last Friday’s Common Core Smarter Balanced Assessment Test of a test." I love tests of tests!

I never thought that I would see the day that Rocco Frank supports socialism.
Rocco Frank Milford Independents April 22, 2014 at 07:39 PM
I really do not support Socialism, I support giving people a "Hand Up" and not aRead More"Han d Out" I believe in giving people wood and an education to build a warm lasting home, and not a barn fire so they can stay warm for the night. There is nothing wrong with pulling together for each other, at least so long as you have good intentions. I think the 8 Per-centers in D.C. have earned their distrust through (if I may borrow a phrase) their "long train of repeated abuses." So long as everything stays the same nothing changes, that why I say is it "we the people" or "them the government?" only the man in the mirror can answer that.

How is controlling the cost of milk not socialism? It is. The market rate for milk would be 8 bucks Read Morebut the government makes it 3. This is no different than the federal government getting involved with healthcare No difference at all. Either both are socialist or neither. Either you support both or neither unless you are able to lie to yourself. Cliven Bundy is actually a millionaire. Lets give him a hand up. He is an 8 percenter.

The face of your statement or your theory may look and sound good but I think if you look deeperRead Moreand consider all the issues that would and could develop I think you would reconsider.

If the leftist hate you, like they do the Tea Party, and the Koch bros., then both the Tea PartyRead Moreand the Koch bros, must be doing something right.

@liz - A very scholarly treatise in deed? But you left out the phrase 'ipso facto.'
Michael Brown April 21, 2014 at 11:19 AM
@Gary Tobin - If I've never made this clear to you, I find you to be a self centered fool. I think Read Moremost of what you write is inane and stupid. Hope that clears up the facts of "our relationship" as you put it.
John Pasnau April 21, 2014 at 11:24 AM
Feeling the love, you guys should get a room.
Gary Tobin April 21, 2014 at 02:11 PM
John Pasnau - I'm not feeling the love anymore Mr. Michael Brown - This all started with youRead Moresugges ting I attend the BOE Meeting tonight and maybe they would select me to replace Mr. Saley on the BOE. I thought you were coming around and freeing yourself from the Dem Town Committee's shackles and thinking for yourself, my bad. Thank you for clearing that up. -------------------------------------------------------------- I still have not received a response from Ms. Susan Glennon, Chair, Milford Board of Education. -------------------------------------------------------------- SO THE QUESTION STANDS DOES ANYONE KNOW WHO THE REPLACEMENT IS FOR MR. SALEY?

I'm reminded of a quote from Albert Einstein; "Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge Read Moreof Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."

Let’s get to the core of my argument; pun intended. What Americans are calling Common Core is Read Moreeerily similar to my educational experience growing up in Ghana. In Ghana, K-12th grade education was tightly controlled by the Ghana Education Service, an organization similar to the US Department of Education. From curricula to syllabi to standardized testing, the government controlled everything.
