GREENCREEK — On Saturday, Feb. 28, Idaho County Republicans met at the Greencreek Community Center for their annual Lincoln Day Dinner. About 150 attendees feasted prior to listening to attorney Christ Troupis talk in some detail about “Common Core: What’s Next.”
Troupis noted that while Common Core promotes itself as providing higher academic standards, it actually lowers those standards while attempting to force all children into a standardized educational box, particularly during early developmental years when children are developing at dramatically different rates. He also noted that several states have dropped the program and several others are considering dropping it.
Attendees included State Senator Sherry Nuxoll, representatives from Idaho’s congressional delegation and a number of local politicians. Paul Anderberg of Kooskia acted as master of ceremonies.
