Chuck Norris Eats Common Core for Lunch (#chucknorrisedufacts)

"In a column for Newsbusters today, Chuck Norris (who is tougher than you) came out strongly against the Department of Education’s “Common Core” curriculum standards (CCSS). In criticizing  this unprecedented federal reach into the classroom, Norris (who eats nails for breakfast) said, “The feds have abandoned their commitment to stay out of local academic affairs by using CCSS to usurp power over public schools and influence young American minds.”

Upon hearing of Norris’ declaration (which caused the ground itself to shake), tweeters immediately saw that this might be the end of Common Core as we know it."

Here's some good ones:

Testing is unnecessary because teachers, schools, districts, and states are already accountable to Chuck Norris. #chucknorrisedufacts—
