Nonsequitur: “Government Officials’ Commands Must Be Obeyed By All”

November 8, 2013

A Common Core writing lesson, titled “Hold the Flag High”, includes the statements: “He (the president) makes sure the laws of the country are fair,” “The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation” and “the commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.” The sentences appear in worksheets published by New Jersey-based Pearson Education currently being used by schools across the nation.
