The people of the Utah Republic have done a great job pulling together the facts about Common Core Standards. They are asking the questions we at MEW want answered: How is what’s happening in American education any different than what’s happening with American healthcare? Why aren’t more people rising up against what the federal government is doing to education in their state?
Gate’s money funds the UN’s goals and they’re being implemented in our local K-12 schools right now!
Q: Why did Microsoft (Gates) sign a contract with UNESCO(United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 2004? 
A: “to remold the entire American system” into “a seamless web that literally extends from cradle to grave and is the same system for everyone,” coordinated by “a system of labor market boards at the local, state and federal levels” where curriculum & “job matching” will be handled by counselors “accessing the integrated computer-based program.”
HELP AMERICA WAKE UP!
Many Organizations are Against Common Core including:
· Heritage Foundation · CATO Institute · Pioneer Institute · Friedman Foundation
· American Principles Project · Eagle Forum · Goldwater Institute · Hoover Institute
· Truth in American Education · Conservative Teachers of America · United Women’s Forum
There is a great timeline for CCCS on their website. We have covered it before on MEW but follow their link if you need a concise refresher..
With Common Core Standards the federal government is telling you what the minimum coverage policy is and that you must buy it, whether you can afford it or not and whether you want it or not. There are companies in the education business, just like there are in insurance, who are more than happy to have the federal government mandate more business for them. And just as insurance coverage does not guarantee you access to medical care (see Canada or the UK), having common core standards does not guarantee your child academic success. Neither program addresses the real problems in these areas, and the cynic in me believes they were never intended to.
