·       Come On Folks, Back Off  And Give Superintendent Of Public Education electee Diane Douglas time to get sworn into office before crucifying her for what may or may not be accurately reported in newspapers and blogs at this point in time.  She can’t do anything until she is sworn in come January. And then she can’t change things at the snap of finger.  She has legal boundaries that she must work within to accomplish her goals – including removal of Common Core. In the meantime, can a little common sense prevail? – Editor
