The Arizona Capitol Times reports that Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal insulted concerned parents and other constituents when he bizarrely compared them to “barbarians” and vowed to fight them in his effort to preserve Obama’s federally imposed education scheme.
“I have put my career on the line to stave off the barbarians. I very likely could lose this election,” Huppenthal said. “I’m okay with that because I felt I did the right thing for this education system,” he added.
Huppenthal said Arizona cannot allow a repeat of what happened in Indiana, which pulled out of the association of states that adopted the standards. Seeing Red AZ covered the victory of Common Core opponents in Indiana who successfully ousted two establishment endorsed House incumbents. The duo lost in a landslide.
An untrustworthy Republicrat, John Huppenthal actually welcomed and toured the state with Obama’s Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, bragging about his collusion in this media advisory.
In Arizona, Common Core standards were adopted by the state Board of Education in 2010.
As objections to the unpopular federal overreach become stronger, Huppenthal and Gov. Jan Brewer deceptively conspired in changing the name Common Core to “Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards” —- fooling no one.
The Indiana victories clearly show that the same can happen in Arizona’s upcoming August 26, primary. John Huppenthal, feeding at the public trough for over three decades, has an able challenger in Diane Douglas.
