It takes 10,000 pages to answer Forest's Common Core questions

Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Forest is challenging the state's adoption of the Common Core education standards by asking the state's education department to answer 20 pages of questions (67 questions in all).

The State Department of Public Instruction received his request and asked him to provide 10,000 pages of paper so they could answer them, according to a Facebook post from Forest. The Republican said his office delivered the paper Friday and posted a photo online.

"Upon receipt of their reply to my letter, my team will methodically research all the answers supplied so that we can push this dialogue at the upcoming Board of Education meetings," Forest wrote. "I will keep you updated on the progress of this effort."

Forest is a member of the State Board of Education. No word on how much time and money it will take DPI to answer his questions or how long Forest's state-paid staff will spend going through the answers.

"No word on how much time and money it will take DPI to answer his questions or how long Forest's state-paid staff will spend going through the answers."

Let me get this straight, the State School Superintendent gives a smart as reply to the Lt. Governor and your big question is how much it will cost DPI to respond to the questions in the letter?

How about how much Common Core is costing our state taxpayers? Start with the cost of CEDARS and work your way up.
