A picture is worth a thousand words. And in this case, we're talking about a picture of a slide from a presentation made this afternoon during the Georgia House of Representatives Education Study Committee. Its title read: "Common Core: The Marxist Brainwashing of American Children."

We're told the presentation came courtesy of Hall County resident Dorothy Kitching, who was listed on the committee's agenda as a grandmother and Tea Party member. Michael O'Sullivan, ‎state outreach director with Students First, a public education non-profit organization, tweeted out the following photo of the slide:

In response, Georgia Budget & Policy Institute Senior Education Policy Analyst Claire Suggs simply tweeted: "Sigh."
